Molecular and Morphologic Diagnostic Features of Precancerous and Cancerous Lesions: What the Pathologist Needs to Know

Educational Objective

The topic was determined by the ASIP Education Committee. The integration of anatomic, molecular, and genomic pathology into surgical pathology practice is conspicuous in oncology, where definition of molecular pathways important for specific tumors has enabled development of drugs to target these pathways, and companion tests to predict which tumors are likely to respond to these targeted agents. However, surgical pathologists still struggle to develop and put into practice markers that distinguish preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions in various solid tumors. This session will focus on biomarkers to distinguish disorders of the prostate, pancreas, tubal gut, and lung. This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of anatomic pathologists and other health care professionals who are involved in diagnosing, managing, and treating patients with disorders of the lung, pancreas, prostate, and tubal gut. Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe biomarkers to distinguish between preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the prostate.
  • Describe biomarkers to distinguish between preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the pancreas.
  • Describe biomarkers to distinguish between preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the tubal gut.
  • Describe biomarkers to distinguish between preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the lung.
