If you are undergoing evaluation and/or treatement for a cancer diagnosis, you can expect that routine laboratory tests such as bloodwork will be part of your ongoing care. Your physician will need to assess your progress and needs during and following initial treatment, as well as your health status in the coming years.

As a patient of New Milford Hospital's Diebold  Family Cancer Center, you will receive considerable information about the nature of the cancer that you have. This information is generally called a "pathology report," and it is critical in determining the optimal treatment plan for you. The information is not obtained all at once; your physician will be reporting it you as it becomes available. Information obtained by laboratory testing is critical in evaluating the kind and duration of treatment you will need, as well as whether you are good candidate for other resources, such as clinical trials, genetic counseling or other treatment and support programs.
