Oncotype wait.

Hi, all. I was diagnosed Aug '23, had a therapeutic mammoplasty in Sept and had tissue sent for oncotyping a week later. Six weeks down the road and I still don't have a result. My oncologist has emailed the lab several times but has heard nothing. I'm really starting to panic now. Has anyone else waited a long time for their result? Thanks.

  • Hello and thank you for your post.

    I am sorry to hear you having breast cancer treatment and I can appreciate your concern about waiting for the Oncotype test results.

    I am afraid I do not know why this is happening.  I have looked online but I cannot find anything to explain this. I do think your breast cancer team will be the best at finding out why you have not got these results yet.

    You might find posting in another area on Cancer Chat allows more people to see your post and perhaps reply. You also might find it helpful to contact Breast Cancer Now to see if they know anything about this.

    I hope you don't wait much longer.

    Please get back to us if you need any more information or support.  You may find it helpful to talk things through with one of the nurses on our helpline.  The number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040 and the lines are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday.

    Take care,
