Hi! I recently started choking and coughing when I eat. My GI took 3 biopsies last Weds.

How long does it take for results? This is my 1st time.

Thank you!

Sorry for the need for biopsies. Normally if your GI takes biopsies it means he sees something he is not sure of. I my case it took three days for the results to get to my GI; but sometimes it can take a bit longer, if a weekend is involved or if the lab they use is a distance away. If the results indicate cancer they normally call your GI imediately and you will get a call from him/her directly to schedule follow up appointments with an oncologist and to schedule CT scans and blood work.

I hope your results indicate someting other than esophageal cancer. 

Best Regards,
