It really depends on the facility. I've had biopsy results before they even got me out of the room...and I've waited a week for results. Same doctor. Different facilities. Call your doctor's office and ask what is "usual" where you're having it done...and if it's a "you'll have to wait...," find out if there is a facility where you can get results quicker.

If I'd have known I'd have to wait following my second, I'd have gone back to the facility where I got results instantly.

Take care...

Good advice from Bev. You may have to wait a week to 10 days for results, however. Call and find out. Lauri
