In brief: Depends on type

Best thing to do is talk to your physician.
A good physician should (in easily understood language) answer any questions you have about the biopsy to your satisfaction, and most importantly, be able to educate you in regards to the benefits and any potential complications of the procedure. Usually, biopsies have minimal risk associated with the procedure, depending on the site.
