In brief: SOME PAIN

For a biopsy the doctor usually uses plenty of local anesthesia to 'numb' the area.
Putting in the local will hurt @ first. Then the biopsy itself will not be felt, but there will be pain after. Muscle pain can 'feel like a charlie horse' --especially with movement-- so follow the doctors 'after-care' directions exactly. Good luck!
