Mum diagnosed with S3 ovarian a month ago based on scan, CA125 score & exam. Biopsy booked within days to confirm but first 2 attemps at hosp inconclusive due to "unsuitable tissue". As theyve said the result will take at least a week, and today shes had her 3rd biopsy in as many weeks, this is delaying the start of her treatment. And without question adding to her anxiety. Theyve said if this 3rd attempt (with CT scan) fails theyll take biopsy via surgery. Naturally were concerned that this 4 week period with no treatment has given the mass more opportunity to grow. Anyone else had similar issues with biopsy?
