In brief: Depends
If your receive conscious sedation, you will not have noticeable pain during the procedure.
Afterward, you may have pain for a day or so unless there is an untoward complication. I had one and it hurt minimally for 24 hours. I had conscious sedation.

In brief: Bone biopsy
Yes, but some local anesthetic can partially less the pain from the soft tissue aspect.
