Tomorrow will be 9 weeks since biopsy. I got results today. No cancer shows in tissue but atypia shows, not enough cells to make a diagnosis, needed a deeper biopsy, he did another biopsy, now I wait 4-6 weeks again. The waiting time is just ridiculous. And then if I do have cancer again apart from how long the delay will already have been how much longer for any treatment???
