What is Pathology:

Pathology is a significant component of the causal study of disease and a major field in modern medical practice and diagnosis. As a field of general inquiry and research, pathology addresses four components of disease: cause/etiology, mechanisms of development, structural alterations of cells, and the consequences of changes.
