Following your consultation it is likely you will require an investigation, which will be reported rapidly.
This may be:
- Ultrasound scan – Same day report
- MRI scan – within 48 hours
- CT scan – within 48 hours
- Xray – same day report
If you require a biopsy to establish the diagnosis this can be performed on the day or within the same week in an outpatient setting.
The result of the histopathology may take up to 2 weeks at which point you will be seen back in clinic to discuss any management plans.
