Hello Sophie, I am going through a similiar thing but unfortunately had core biopsies on both breasts. The results took about two weeks. Unfortunately for me, the result for the right breast was inconclusive, highly suspicious, but the left was benign. Ive had a vacuum assisted biopsy which was highly suspicious so unfortunately Ive just had to have a surgical biopsy under general anaesthetic. So Im a bit fed up to say the least. I hope all goes well for you and is straight forward unlike me. Best wishes.
20 samples does sound a lot. I had 14 taken and they still hadn't got any calcium in those but they decided to stop as they had beaten me up enough.
I was brave at the time but had many a wobble after rethinking how brutal it had been and I hadn't expected it to be like that at all. Just remembering it now gives me shivers.
And yes, 2 weeks for results is about right and seems like a very very long time.
Try and keep busy to keep your mind off it is about the best advice I can give.
Good luck with the results.
I had my first biopsy a few weeks due to easter.
I have just been back for my results frm my MRI and had to have more as they found something else near the tumour.
The wait isnt plesant and can be frustrating i wont lie but ive found this forum as helped me massively and when i ever im having a wobble i log in and read the forums it helps.
I hate needles ( altho you coud tattoo me all day and tht wouldnt bother me) - but i look at i that the pain i have now will help decide on how im gonna beat this b****** xx

hi sophie that was how long i had to wait for results, i was told i had a papiloma and it was inconclusive, i had to have the lump removed yesterday under local anasetic with vacuum biopsy and they then found another 2 lumps so they removed them and have to wait another 2 weeks for results, unfortunately it is a waiting game and its the waiting which is the worst, i hope you get good results take care jules x
