Pathology labs do conduct internal reviews when cases “fall into the gray zone and are not clearly benign or malignant,” and pathologists often call on colleagues who may have more expertise in a certain type of cancer, says Raouf Nakhleh, a pathologist at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., and co-author of the guidelines. They suggest doctors hold conferences in labs and standardize criteria for cases where pathologists often have differing interpretations such as some lesions detected in the thyroid and esophagus.
