Two days to a week: If it is a routine histological examination by the pathologist it will take less than 48 hours. It takes one day to fix the tissue and the next day the slides are examined under the microscope and the pathologist dictates it out. It could be as early as 48 hour or more than a week if you need special stains performed.
