    Trevor A. Flood attended the University of Ottawa for both medical school and residency. Following his residency in Anatomic Pathology, he completed a fellowship at Harvard Medical School working at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Genitourinary Pathology. Trevor then returned to Ottawa where he is now an Assistant Professor in Anatomic Pathology with a Genitourinary sub specialization. His research interests relate primarily to identifying morphologic and molecular prognostic features in prostate, kidney, and bladder cancers. Several of his projects have focused on various histologic features recognized in biopsies and/or oncologic resections that ultimately correlate with tumor stage, disease recurrence, and cancer specific mortality. He also has interests in using technology as a tool in anatomic pathology as well as integrating a multidisciplinary approach to genitourinary oncology problems through collaboration with diagnostic radiologists and surgeons alike.


In this session participants will receive a rapid review of neoplastic kidney, testis, bladder, and prostate pathology. Emphasis will be placed on high yield and commonly encountered entities.


  1. Identify the common histologic subtypes or renal cell carcinoma and list which genetic syndromes that they are associated with.
  2. List features of common testicular neoplasms and know which immunohistochemical stains can be used to differentiate them.
  3. Distinguish between bladder lesions and identify histologic subtypes.
  4. Diagnose and grade prostate cancer and how to write an appropriate report.
