Pathology is a branch of medical science that involves the study and diagnosis of disease through the examination of surgically removed organs, tissues (biopsy samples), and bodily fluids

Pathologists specialize in a wide range of diseases including cancer and the vast majority of cancer diagnoses are made by pathologists.

 The cellular pattern of tissue samples are observed under a microscope to help determine if a sample is cancerous or non-cancerous (benign)

The Department of Pathology in Dharan hospital provides comprehensive diagnostic services with emphasis on accuracy, precision and prompt reporting to our patients thereby helping and guiding the clinicians in proper patient management
