DH biopsy result- how long?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I had my DH skin biopsies today and the medical assistant said it would take 5 weeks to get the result back. That seems excessive- has this been everyone else's experience as well? Thanks for your help!

I can't imagine it taking more than 2 weeks. I just did a google search & everything came up with melanoma biopsies and about the longest those took was 10 days. Maybe she said weeks but meant to say days? 5 days? Why don't you give them a call tomorrow & ask if you misunderstood.

@squirmingitch, thanks for your reply. I know different types of biopsies can take longer depending on how long the medium and contrast may take to develop. After a couple of weeks I will call to clarify though, thanks again!
