How Long Does It Normally Take For A Karyotype Result To Come Back
My infection of the gum has built up an abscess. Had it two weeks ago, it healed and has come back. I am taking cerufoxime axetil. How long does it normally take to heal?
Not the issue: Dental infections (or any infection) that does not resolve needs to be further evaluated. There is a reason why it came back & that needs to be determined and addressed. We can't diagnose the problem over the internet, nor just tell you wait until it heals, because at this point it is unlikely to do so & even if it seems better, might return one day, even worse than originally.

Depends on type: An HIV test can be done instantly in the doctor's office (results are not as reliable), or it can be done in a regular lab. Usually not more than 2-3 days.

What exactly is a CSF culture & what is its purpose? Is it difficult to perform and does it take longer than blood cultures for a result to come back?
Similar to blood: A CSF culture is when you take a sample of CSF (usually from a lumbar puncture which samples the CSF from the spinal canal in the lower back - so yes a bit more difficult to perform but still pretty routine) and culture it to see if there are bacteria (or sometimes viruses) growing in it, usually to look for meningitis. It takes the same amount of time as a blood culture (48 hours). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: Did you have it at an outpatient office? A hospital? All scans should be read within 24 hours (and almost all in less than that). Where the report goes is then the problem. Did you ask for a copy of the report? If not it probably went to your doctor who ordered the test. You should contact that doctor's office to ask about the results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Quickly: Some blood tests take 2-3 days. Some come back the same day. A semen analysis usually takes 1 day. I perform my own x rays so I have the results immediately. Some genetic tests may take a little longer. Overall, it takes about 3 weeks to run and get all tests results back because some are timed to different parts of the menstrual cycle. ...Read more

~48hrs: Most basic pathology results from a biopsy should be available in ~48hrs. The tissue needs to fix in formalin for a particular amount of time (6hrs-overnight) then be processed, slides made and stained, then interpreted. Each of these steps takes time. Additional staining or deeper cuts for furthe evaluation/markers may add another day before the full results are back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
