waiting for feedback

Post by keiralittle » Sat Jul 13, 2019 3:31 am

I am pending a biopsy regarding a suspicious lesion (flat like a mole) on my foot. I hope it's okay to post here while I am awaiting my biopsy results.

I had an excisional biopsy on November 13. So, tomorrow it will be two weeks. I'm extremely worried. I'm worried that the time it's taking pathology, means it may be malignant. I am worried about 14 days lost (assuming its malignant) during which I could have had the margins removed. I'm worried about 14 days impact on prognosis. I'm worried about how long this mole may have been on my foot. I'm worried.

So, just looking for support from those who have walked in my shoes. Thanks.

Are you saying the biopsy was done last November? And no results yet? Length of time can mean that they are unable to determine the biopsy results. Have you asked them why it is taking so long?
