Biopsy results

Last reply: 20 October 2020 11:17

I’ve had a biopsy to remove a mole and was told my GP would let me know the results in 4/5 weeks. I receive a letter from the hospital five days after my biopsy to say that I am due a review appointment in a month. I was meant to have the review appointment in two months. When I rang to find out why my appointment had been changed, I was informed that the consultant had asked for it to be moved up to a sooner date to recieve my biopsy results. Now I am worried it could be bad news, anyone ever go through something similar? Any advice would be amazing. I know I shouldn’t focus on a negative outlook but I’m so worried.
