Not really: Hi, My pts usually do not feel much if any pain during or after the biopsy. Mild soreness can occur, but usu would only last up to 1-2 days. Given your concern & the recent procedure, you should get checked out. Begin by calling the doc that did the biopsy & taking his/her advice. If there is redness, swelling, fevers, or chills you need to get evaluated immediately. I hope for a good diagnosis
