Histopathology results? How long?

26 Apr 2019 19:33

Hi all, today I had a mole removed from my abdomen ( dermatologist classed it as very suspicious and wanted to rule out melanoma!) So as you can imagine I'm more than a little concerned. I've today been told that results could take up to 6 weeks! Is this normal? I didn't think in 2019 people would have to wait that long. I don't think my nerves can take the wait!

I thought that was the idea of the two week rule.

Had a referral within 2 weeks and removed within 2 weeks of initial appointment,  but told 6 weeks for results! My nerves are going to be shot to hell!
