I had a lump removed from my breast 28th june my appointment  was meant to be today 17th July for the results but the breast clinic have cancelled due to not having my results back, is this a good thing or bad thing? How can it take so long for results to come back, I dont know what to think.

Hi Sheath, 

Welcome to the forum and I'm sorry to hear that your results appointment was cancelled on Wednesday. 

Try not to read too much into the fact that your apointment has been rescheduled. Whilst we know that waiting for results can be a very difficult time for some people, there could be any number of reasons that the results aren't yet available to the team. 

Have they given you a new date to see the Dr for your results? Hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer. If it would help to chat to one of our team of nurses whilst you're waiting, do give them a call on 0808 800 4040. They're available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. 

I hope you hear soon. 

Best wishes,
