How quickly you get the results of your biopsy will depend on the hospital where you have had the procedure and the urgency of your case.
The results of routine cervical smear tests usually take between 10-14 days to become available, while the results of biopsies that are carried out because your doctor suspects a serious condition, such as cancer, may be available within a few days.
In cases where a biopsy is performed during surgery, a result is often available within minutes so that the right treatment can be given while the surgery is in progress.
Your GP, hospital consultant or practice nurse, will give you your results and explain what they mean. Sometimes, a biopsy will not be conclusive, which means that it has not produced a definitive result. If this is the case, the process may need to be repeated or you may require further tests in order to double check your diagnosis.
