I looked this over earlier today and it's a great post. But it does not go into grading at all. 18 types, but no differentiating pictures. Also missing are sarcoma's.
This is a good post however, it gives the idea why pathologies should be reviewed a second time. In addition, it also shows why biopsies are ambiguous in their use. The use of color doplar and other imagine techniques have almost no chance of telling what kind of cancer with certainty you are dealing with. And even these shots do not determine how a cancer will behave with or without treatment.
You said it before...crazy disease.
