Immunohistochemistry is a frequently used method in diagnostic pathology to specify the cancer (eg. T-cell lymphoma vs. B-cell lymphoma). Having a specific diagnosis, rather than just a general diagnosis such as lymphoma, is essential in modern medicine as different cancer types are best treated with different approaches. Further, some cancers are difficult to detect without immunohistochemistry.
