My brother had a biopsy on the liver yesterday to confirm mestastic rectal cancer. Can anyone give me a ballpark figure on how long it takes to get the results? Thanks!

I never had a biopsy but I probobly had at least 50 scans and it varied anywhere from the same day once to over a week.

I had a liver biopsy a year ago when LFTs rose 3 yrs post colon cancer diagnosis. It took 10 days for preliminary path report. My doctor did call with those results; then, met with me when full report came back about a week later.  My care is in a major teaching hospital. I ended up having an autoimmune disease so I am not sure if that effected length of time.

Wishing your brother the best.
