RE: [Histonet] Feelings

From:"Ingles Claire"

It's a little of both for me. When we lab rats see an unusual cancer we think it's really cool from an academic point of view. But when we get large layer after large layer from the same patient, we feel sorry for them. But I work in a Mohs lab and all of our specimens are of a stat nature. Most of our patient base is older as well, and when I see a frail old lady wheeled in for her third excision that day, my heart goes out. We also have a lot of chronic patients that keep coming back every few months, and when we see them on the schedule for the day, my co-workers and I just kind of sigh, put on our work faces and are determined to get the patient clear of cancer for the day. To know that we are curing patients on a daily basis helps keep me here though.

How does it make you feel when you find pathology in a tissue sample? Does
it make you sad or are you just doing your job?
