Internal scan

How long should it take to get results from a scan and if appropriate can I contact the hospital where I had the scan?

  • Hi Vizzy and welcome to Cancer Chat.

    The waiting time for results can differ depending on what part of the UK you are in and whether your hospital is still dealing with backlogs or delays.

    Hopefully you won't have to wait too long for your results but if you'd like to find out how long it may take then do contact the hospital where you had your scan to find out. They should be able to answer any other questions you have in relation to this as well.

    I hope this helps but if you would like to discuss anything further with one of our cancer nurses, they're available on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m.

    Kind regards,
