Grossing is a gross examination of surgical specimens in which pathologists inspect the excised specimen with the bare eye to obtain diagnostic information. It refers to the examination and dissection of surgical specimens, along with preparation of sections from those tissues requiring processing, and is the initial step in surgical pathology dissection. Careful handling of the tissue with proper fixation and tissue processing will enable a confident histopathological diagnosis.
