Question Is this typical?

I'm not ready to go into much detail yet, but I have a question.
When you go to have a biopsy done on a mass, do they typically send you to an oncologist before any definite diagnosis?
Google isn't helping.

My dad did not, but his primary dr is an ass, so I wouldn't go by that.

The two cases in my family that I can think of, yes they were sent to oncology instantly.

Okay, so there could still be a chance of it being benign? I'd like to keep my hopes up, but the odds are not good.

Oncologist is the only person I would trust to tell me it was benign.

The oncologists are the experts so don't worry yet! when I had my polyp examined it went to oncology lab for testing and at the time, my doc assumed it was nothing due to my age. and it went there... they dot he testing!!!

When I had my breast lump last year I didn't see an oncologist. A radiologist did my biopsy and the mammography office gave me my results. I'm assuming a lab tested them.

I believe that's how things went with my breast biopsy when I was 17.

In this current situation, it's a major organ. I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

DH was seen by an oncologist when he had his lymph node issues that they were afraid was leukemia. The oncologist didn't give us the results over the phone, either, he called us in. I was convinced that it was terrible news, but it wasn't and dh was fine. He said he gets so few chances to deliver good news in his line of work that he always wants to do it face to face. So I wouldn't assume anything until you have results in hand.

DH also went to the oncologist for results. Although we didn't like that oncologist's treatment plan she did give the results. We went to that organ specialist for treatment.
~~~~~~~
And of course positive thoughts that it's benign.

My mom, who had breast cancer didn't see an oncologist until after she was diagnosed. I'm pretty sure pathology determines if it's benign or malignant. I'm guessing it just depends on who is doing the biopsy how they handle the results. I'm sorry. It's gotta be a scary time.
