Hi Everyone! How long does it take for biopsies to come back? Last Weds I had 7! My GI said they all looked suspicious ... but I haven't heard a thing. How long did it take for you? Thanks!

    I haven't had any biopsies, only complete resections,

    but I know after my first surgery the first round of tests for all the basic cancers was done in about a week.  Because I have a wonky tumor type, it ended up taking more than a week, but that wouldn't be the case for most people.  i would call tomorrow and ask!  You shouldn't have to wait any's way too stressful.

    Good luck, hope the news is good.

    Give them a call

    I presume you had colonoscopy biopsies. I think mine took about a week. I would definitely call them. You have a right to know what they are, good or bad.  Some Doctors don't call if everything is OK. But its good to konw, one way or another.

    Biopsies were taken on Friday and results were back on Monday. We live in a large city, so maybe that helps.
