The modern diagnostic method in oncology is immunocytochemical (ICC) studies.
These are reactions that make it possible to determine whether a cell belongs to a particular species or to detect undesirable changes in it (mutations and proteins determined by them).
In this method, specialists can work on small materials.
Research allows you to:
determine the type of neoplasm;
specify the source of metastasis in an undetected primary tumor;
identify the lesion of the lymphatic system;
choose a treatment strategy and evaluate the response to it.
Thanks to ICC studies, patients often manage to avoid a number of diagnostic operations.
