I had an MRI done two weeks ago on my lower back, I am worried I have a spinal tumor, the doctor does'nt think so and is mainly checking for disc problems.

I have an appointment booked on the 30th dec, but thats a long time if there was something wrong like a tumour would they contact me earlier? It is really worrying esp over christmas.

Many thanks for your time guys.

They should sent the results to your doctor so you could call them and ask if they have a report back yet.

I can assure you that if you had a spinal MRI done and something worrying had shown up, you would have been contacted within a week.

The fact that you haven't heard anything means that they haven't found anything of immediate concern, however, if worried, give the surgery a call.

In my experence if there has ever been anything wrong with any test ive had, however minor the problem, i have always had a call within a week.
It might not be the case in every area but if they found a major problem im sure you would have contacted you by now.
