I completed treatment Oct 31.2012 for 4 cm anal cancer tumor with 3 pelvic nodes involves 2 close to the tumor and one by the tail bone. I had good news this past Wed, from the oncologist, with a clear CT ( after being denied PET scan by insurance)
I was told I need a biopsy and have scheduled an appointment with a colo-rectal surgeon for Jan 28.
What is involved with a biospy? Will it be done that day? Is it done in the office? ( and my biggest concern) Is it painful?
