      Because they have some concerns with the original testing. And they might wish to use some advanced equipment. This is not uncommon when you switch Docotrs or hospitals. Better safe than sorry.

      Assuming you have had some treatment in the meantime, the pathological information in you original biopsies would no longer apply.

      Thanks for the info. I'm just thinking they were wanting to do more tests to pad the bill.
