“Just had a good friend go through the biopsy. They dont take one tissue sample, they take ten. Ill go with the gadget, thanks.”
Twelve, actually. And it hurts to sit for a month. OTOH, I’m not going to die of prostate cancer.
Well, there’s a difference among doctors regarding number of samples, so it could be 10 or 12, or more. There’s usually a little recovery time, but if it hurt to sit for a MONTH, I’d pay more attention to hand size in choosing a urologist next time.
Mine was thirteen. and I had no pain afterwards.
