Diagnosis : tumoral diagnosis according to :

- tumoral appearance

According to tumoral architecture - Examples

- lobular tumors (lobular pattern - lobular architecture )
- trabecular tumors (trabecular pattern - trabecular architecture )
-  papillary tumors (papillary pattern - papillary architecture )
- acinous tumors (acinous pattern - acinous architecture )
- compact tumors (compact pattern - compact architecture )
- trabecular tumors (trabecular pattern - trabecular architecture )

According to cell appearance

- fusiform cell tumors
- small cell tumors
- round cell tumors

- signet ring cell tumors
- clear cell tumors

Features

- tumoral phenotype
- fetal tumors and neonatal tumors
- tissular specificity of tumors
- tumoral cells
- tumoral stroma

Miscellaneous

- neonatal tumors
- cystic tumors
