How long till skin biopsy results come?

Posted , 5 users are following.

 I had a skin biopsy 4 weeks ago and I still haven't heard the results. The doctor said the he would call as soon as the results come back. I am starting to get worried, why would it take so long to get a lump tested?

      I live in Canada, the doctor said it would be normally around a week before the results are back. I am debating whether I should call him to make sure that he does not have my results.

    Hi,

    It would be best to contact your doctor, a few days is normally long enough.

    Have you had the stitches taken out from your biopsy site yet, that's usually done two weeks later.

    Hi Boris: I've had biopsies before but can't remember how long it took for results but it shouldn't take too long. Depends on the doctor! It may take him a while before he gets to the results! He might really be busy. I'd call him and ask.
