This is normal.: Having concerns about a pending medical procedure is ok. There are many types of biopsies. Ask the doctor or other provider who is going to perform the biopsy to explain in detail and aswer any questions that you have. Having a better understanding of the specific procedure may help to calm and reassure you. Be well.
