How long does it usually take to get a breast biopsy result?

2-3 days

I hope you had a core needle biopsy, which is the standard-small incision. These results should be available in 2-3 days. A surgical biopsy should rarely be performed as the first step. These can take 3-5 days to get back results.

How long does it take to get the results of a nail biopsy back?

Three to four days.

Biopsy
A pathology report from a fingernail or toenail biopsy should generally be available after a three to four day time period. In rare instances, special additional studies may make this time frame slightly longer. Hope that this helps.

How long will it take to get the results back from an endometrial biopsy?

Depends on lab

Pathologist
Most pathology laboratories have a 2-3 day turn around time. However, timing factors and special studies can increase the time to results. To improve your chances of a quick turn-around time, schedule your biopsy early in the day and early in the week. Consider requesting that your biopsy be reviewed by a specialist in gynecologic pathology, although this can take longer to arrange.

i am having a bone biopsy on my jawbone. three spot are being biospy how long show it take to get results back?

Week or so

Bone_biopsy
after the bone gos to th lab it has to be demineralized,stained, and viewed microscopically, if any question obout the diagnosis, rather than give the wrong Dx to you the BXs are sent out for opinions from other experts. so if simple a week if harder to Dx, 2-3 weeks depending on the speed they are sent out and viewed and returned.

Biopsy results take how long to get? 5 days?

1 to 2 days

Open-uri20131122-1251-1di1wnq
A biopsy is usually processed and reported in 24 to 48 hours. The things that could delay that is if the biopsy goes to a lab in another state for processing. At worst, this should only add another 24 hours to the entire process

How long can it take to get bone biopsy results?

A few days

Bone
Depending on what the biopsy is for, the initial results (gross micro) will come back in a few days. If the biopsy is for something more specific like tumors, infection, then the permanent results can take up to a week depending on additional stains or final culture results.

How long will it take to get my liver biopsy results?

Two days to a week

Liver_biopsy
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.
