this is dottie again. i retrieved my pathology report from my hem'tectomy back in December of 2007 and it reads: "there is a focal area of the squamous epithelium showing high-grade squamous dysplasia (moderate to severe squamous dysplasia). This appears to be an incidental finding, in an area of epithelium that does not have any significant inflammation. Recommend careful clinical correlation."
My surgeon told me there was clear margins, but I don't read that anywhere. Does focal mean tiny ? Meaning it was just that one particular spot? So that means clear margins then?
What do you make of the pathology report? Not too good at deryciphering these things. Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you.
I am trying to get some assistance through the ACS so that I can see my original surgeon for a follow up. That is where I am at right now.
