Together we will beat cancer


Histology report follow up appt.

13 Feb 2018 15:38

Hello, thank you for letting me join. I had a large sub-sternal thyroid tumour & a lobectomy on 24th Jan 2018 after my fna & ultrasound came back as a thy3. Ive just been informed by my consultants secretary that my histology report came back last Friday & that I have an appointment with my consultant on 6th March. Would I be correct in thinking that the fact that I am having to wait 3 weeks for this appointment that my results would be good news ? I’m really confused as my GP said that if there was nothing to worry about I probably wouldn’t be seen again & the surgery would be the end of the matter.

Hi Tracey,

I wish you a very warm welcome to Cancer Chat.

I would love to be able to agree with you about the 3 week wait for results, but unfortunately it doesn't work like that. I have had 2 bouts of breast cancer and was fortunate enough to be seen within a week of my initial tests both times. Others have reported just getting the news over the phone whether the results were good or bad.

The length of time you wait seems to vary in different parts of the country.I know that this is always an anxious time, but you haven't got much longer to wait. Try to distract yourself by keeping busy meanwhile.

I do hope that you get favourable results.

Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on. We are always here for you whenever you feel like talking.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx
