Good afternoon. I had a breast biopsy last weds & the radiographer told me to come back next weds that's tomorrow for my results I rang the hospital this morning and they told me she had no right to tell me when to come back that it's 2 weeks standard and that I wouldn't be seeing her it's a consultant. She have me the 3rd of January for the call back. So that's 3 weeks in total. I'm really worried now. She said there's a delay due to Christmas.

Hi Shellyk23

Thank you for your post.

Waiting on biopsy results can be a very stressful time and even more difficult at this time of the year but it does normally take at least 2 weeks for results.
