The Waiting Game

Waiting for test results isn’t easy. Not all tests are done by the same lab, and some take longer than others to get/give results.
Be patient. You’re gathering lots of information now, and when enough puzzle pieces are together, you and your doctor can sit down and talk about the reports so you understand your options for a treatment plan.
You may be tempted to search the internet for information. I highly suggest you share what you find, and thoughts you have with your medical team. Anyone can put anything on the internet. Don’t believe it all (that goes for hear-say as well.) Use reputable sites, and common sense.

Four credible websites:
National Cancer Institute:
American Cancer Society:
