    Question How long for results of breast biopsy?

    I had a stereotactic breast biopsy on Tuesday and now Saturday. They told me I have an appointment to get the results next Tuesday. Is this usual - no phone calls or anything before. I had a cluster of calcifications. Doctor said he took them all for lab. Any info would be great!

    Hi there,

    Ya I think that is about right. I had the same thing done and I think I got results in 4 days. But I actually knew someone so I think that helped me. But I believe a week is normal. Just try to relax but I know the waiting is the worst part of it all. Think positive.

    Hi! Thanks! and just wanted you to know my Grandfather was born in Glasgow about 1850 or so and came to US when he was 14. His last name was Macaulay. I always wanted to visit Scotland but probably never will now. I hear it is lovely there. Elaine

    I am sorry. I did not mean to sound like it was the end for me. I am 67 and my husband is not well - he has COPD and maybe lung cancer. I probably woudl not travel to Scotland that is all. We love to travel but would stay here in the States. I get results of biopsy tomorrow. I will le tyou know. Elaine

    My results were benign - no problems - just mammograms every three months or so to keep an eye on any more calcifications. Now still waiting for husband's results! Elaine
