Dear Chelsea,
Thank you for your post. Yes, this is normal procedure, it can take up to 14 working days to have full biopsy results returned. This can be a worrying time, if you would like to talk to a nurse, please don’t hesitate to call the Irish Cancer Society’s Cancer Nurseline on 1800 200 700, Monday-Friday 0900-1700.
