I would just let the Dr know and let him decide what to do. It is better to be safe than sorry. He should be OK but it would be best to check with the Dr performing the procedure.

Re: Question about biopsy/ibuprofen....

I would doubt there's going to be any issues, given that there will have been 5 days of not having taken any-- but as Trace suggested, why not just let them know so you're not making the decision blindly. Good luck on biopsy day....
