Regardless of the method used for your biopsy, the tissue specimens will be sent to a pathologist for review. A pathologist is a physician who specializes in analyzing the growth of abnormal cells under a microscope.
A definite diagnosis should be available within a few days.
Please check with your healthcare provider regarding specific expectations for your facility. Many times physicians will instruct you to make an appointment to discuss your results and decide together on the next step, if necessary.
