Translocation Renal Cell Carcinoma


Pathology Second Opinion

Is your diagnosis correct?

Dr. Argani directs the world's largest consultation service dedicated to translocation carcinomas. He reviews consultations on these tumors from all over the world, and likely has the largest collection of them in existence. His laboratory uses state of the art tools developed at Johns Hopkins (such as TFE3 FISH and TFEB FISH) to confirm or refute the diagnosis of translocation carcinoma. Dr. Argani reviews all of these cases personally.

A pathology second opinion requires only that your doctor send your slides, pathology report, and a paraffin tissue block of the tumor to us. No additional surgery is necessary. To have the tumor reviewed by Dr. Argani at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, please follow the instructions on the second opinion page of the Department of Pathology.
