Long wait for cervical polyp results

22 May 2019 17:41

I wondered if anyone else has had a long wait - I had a cervical polyp removed in February after going to Dr with heavy periods. I'm 50 so had the Morena coul fitted at the same time. They said results would take 6-8 weeks. As I haven't heard back, I was blase and thought it was good news. A friend suggested I should double check, so I've phoned this week and found the results are still pending. It's May! Is this usual and will the polyp still be examinable?

Hi Missmarple

Sorry to hear that you've had some health concerns and that it's taking so long for the results to come back. 

There could be any number of reasons that you've been waiting so long and it would only be guess work on our part as to why that might be. 

If you are still concerned then get back in touch with your GP or the consultant that you saw at the hospital. 

Best wishes,
