The constant fear of a needle in a very sensitive place?? :)
Hope everything works out for you.
Are there lasting side effects of a prostate biopsy?
Assumimng that everything is done properly there should be no lasting side effects and in the case of a prostrate biopsy they should be alble to numb the site so that there is little or no pain. Even if they don't the pain will only be for a few minutes so I wouldn't fear it too much. Good Luck
My husband had 15 jan 19, 2012 he also had a bladder mass removed that turned out to be bladder cancer. He was completely back to normal within 2 months. Only symptom was frequency but think that was because of the bladder mass removal. He did not need pain meds after. Also you will NOT feel anything when they take the biopsy. Hope this helps. Try not to stress out and ask your Doctor any questions you have.
