I understand your concern, fear of cancer can be extremely upsetting and disruptive. However I can reassure you that a biopsy is a diagnostic test for cancer
and if the test was negative then you can put your fear to rest. I you still have lingering doubts get referred back to the consultant who carried out the test and ask them to review the site in question and perhaps review the tissue sample then you can get some peace of mind.
