Would I get a phone call to come sooner for bad results

Hi,I had a lump in my breast biopsied last week. On exam I was told it was most likely a Fibroadenoma but with ultrasound they were unsure and concerned it may be something else. I got an appointment for two weeks later to get results.

I have been told by others that have been through similar situations and had Fibroadenomas that they were told if it was bad They would get a call to come in sooner. 

Does anyone have experience with this and would you be called in quicker than two weeks for bad news?

Hi,

this is really 50/50 and the protocol will differ from one healthcare provider to the next, so one persons experience will be different from another's...

 

i know it hard but try and relax and keep busy, the waiting is the worst part.....and remember....it isn't something until it is something.....let us know how you get on? Xxxx
