80 yr old. Kidney lesion on kidneys. Waiting for biopsy results. Suggestions?
Hi My 80 year old father had an mri done on his lower back and left leg for pain. They discovered kidney lesions on both kidneys. We have waited a week for biopsy results and found out yesterday that it will be another week (they sent them to mayo) is it normal for the results to take that long? We are concerned that the longer it takes, the worse the news.
welcome to the forum. Results may be delayed pending second opinion or to do special stains which are available in special centres only. I understand your anxiety but there is nothing else one can do other than waiting. Wish him best health.
