The Biopsies

My biopsies took place a week after my tests were done. They did a core needle biopsy with ultrasound guidance. Six samples from the 1st mass and 4 samples from the second mass (turned out to be a mass and not a cyst like they originally though)t. It was a bit painful getting stuck with needles with lidocaine and then the big core needle to take the biopsy sample. I got through it and was a bit sore. The hardest part was waiting for the results to come back which would take at least 48 hours. That seemed like an eternity to me.
