Re: FAO NHS medical professionals - some advice please?
Obv. I don't know the case or the routine in your area, but if it was something nasty, I would expect you to be informed very quickly. usscans are always turning stuff up that don't turn out to be anything untoward. the radiographer HAS to be non-committal, but if it was suspicious I think she would have nipped in to the radiologist
Sorry for the ridiculously off topic post but I'm under the impression that there are quite a few NHS medical professionals on the board and I'm hoping someone can help.
This morning I went for an MRI on a liver lesion that appeared on an unrelated, routine ultrasound a few weeks ago. I've been told that it could be totally benign but not really much else. The radiographer told me I could wait 4-6 weeks for the results, which seems like a very long time if they suspect something serious.
Does anyone know how this process works? If it was cancer would I get my results quicker or does every case follow the same process? Obviously I would rather discuss this with my GP but it is very difficult to get time with them as the surgery is quite over-subscribed.
