Tests results :
Please help me understand how the radiologist can have immediate results when you are getting a routine mammogram and follow up ultra sounds but if they need to do a ultra sound needle biopsy it's takes 3-4 days ? Or longer at times. Where in the world do they send that biopsy to be examined ?
I am not sure what's worse the anxiety doing the test or the multiple days waiting to see if you or your loved one is negative or positive with cancer.
In this case I am the loved one concerned while I sit and wonder in the waiting room at the Image center. Even though the lobby is nice and the staff talks very cordial and soft it's heartbreaking to see all of the women sitting waiting for thier name to be called back.
Not many of the women ( and a couple men) even have a loved one with them for this procedure.
