Hello and thanks for your question.
I am sorry you are having this difficulty. It depends upon the lab that pathology tissues are sent to and upon the tests that are being done. Tissues have to be prepared and stained before they can be examined by a pathologist under a microscope. Sometimes the tissue has to be frozen and sliced finely then placed on a slide and stained. All of this can take some time. Two weeks seems like a reasonable time to process tissues and get results.
I hope all of your results are normal.
