Clear Margins

Have you had your doctor or someone you know say “clear margins” and wondered what it meant?

Generally it means an area of tissue has been removed and normal tissue was found around the borders of the removed area.

This is generally seen as a good thing, meaning the abnormal tissue or lump was removed with clear margins, indicated the abnormal tissue was removed completely.
