Correlate genotype with pathologic phenotype and clinical outcome. [ Time Frame: one time ]
The Tissue Bank will store all "Tissue Bank" consents. The patients will be given a unique identifier by the tissue bank. However, patients will need to be identified to link to clinical data and possible followup (if they have consented) via chart or tumor registries.
Choosing to participate in a study is an important personal decision. Talk with your doctor and family members or friends about deciding to join a study.
