Marcia Edelweiss, MD

I am a board-certified pathologist and cytopathologist on the Surgical Pathology Diagnostic Service with a special interest in breast disease and general cytology.

As a breast pathologist, I analyze breast tissue biopsies and surgical specimens to identify signs and characteristics of disease, and make determinations about diagnoses that help guide treatment decisions for our patients.

As a cytologist, I analyze cells and fluid samples from various organs to help make diagnoses. I also perform biopsies in which I use a thin needle to remove cells or fluid from nodules that you can feel through the skin, a procedure called “fine needle aspiration.” This minimally invasive technique enables us to make an accurate diagnosis with relatively few cells and less risk for complications.
