I cannot find a page for the Breast Imaging department, so am having to post under General Medicine. In 2008 I had breast cancer, requiring an operation and radiotherapy. Since then I have had to have regular mammograms, which have obviously been stressful given my history. I attended for my latest mammo on 24th February, so well over 2 weeks ago. The staff were as always lovely, but I haven't received any results yet. The NHS website says these should be within 2 weeks, but even if they arrive Monday it will only be one day short of 3 weeks. As I have had breast cancer in the past, I would have thought the results should be posted to me as a priority, as they should be to anyone who has a history of breast cancer. I do not feel able to ring up, as if I was given bad news I would go to pieces on the phone. Why are the results taking so long?
