Biopsy Pain?

I'm sure this will sound trite to all of you but I'm trying to take one day at a time and one issue at a time even though I've been down this road with both of my parents and actually know the drill BUT, for those of you who have had a needle biopsy of the lung--is there much pain (I know they'll numb the area) and how long were you there? I never want to take their word of the pain involved or the length of time.

Thanks,
Robin

Re: Biopsy Pain?

they will numb the area. Pain is not bad and is over before you know it. could take an hour max..........don't worry...........it's not that bad.......
