I think your doctor may have determined that because your dad had it there was a better action in expediting the biopsy. Regardless it was a positive test and no delays. Welcom to the best site on the internet I could find for patient to patient support. I would extend a welcome for both your uncle and your dad. When you get the information on your uncle, perhaps you can post your dad's info as well. Welcome and stay close. You have our prayers for you and your family.
