How do pathologists stage a breast tumor?

Pathologists use a variety of techniques to determine the stage of a tumor. Pathologists study the characteristics of cancer cells as well as the overall structure of the sample. Pathologists determine the mitotic index (how many of the cells are dividing) and the histologic ‘grade’, a measure of how abnormal the cells appear.
