it makes sense to get a good pathology consultation. The other option you have is to have a telemedicine consultation.
For instance, at Massachusetts General Hospital we have a service for that
or you can email the person who runs the service: ***@****
They have the ability to have a pathologist here review your slides, a radiologist review any xrays, and an oncologist review the whole case and give a formal recommendation.
For your 28 year old, it will be crucial to get the right diagnosis.Does she need full staging surgery and chemotherapy versus just close follow up with CA 125 tests and ultrasounds as would be the case for a borderline tumor?
