I'm preparing my signature information and want to list percent involved but not sure how to read the biopsy report and calculate this. Here's what included in the report:
1 core of 24 positive. Core length 16mm, tumor length 1 mm, % of tumor 6%
Doctor said approximately 360 mm of tissue submitted for all 24 cores, This is not mentioned on the path report. He said I had .03% cancer of the total submitted, but I calculated it to be .003.
Is the percent involved .003%, .06%, or is it .04% based on 1of 24?
