Now: Call your doctor. The results of a biopsy should be available in less than 4 weeks. Some cultures can take longer but the biopsy report should definitely already be available unless there is a huge backlog in the UK. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

1-2 days: The standard reporting time for a simple biopsy in most accredited (in the USA) labs is about 2 days and should never take 14 days unless the local pathologist could not make a dx and instead sent the bx for consultation somewhere else. Either way, contact your dr to inquire.
