How It Feels
You will feel a brief sting when the IV line is inserted or when the local anesthetic is injected. Other than that, the procedure should be painless.
Your scrotum and testicles may be somewhat sore for 3 to 4 days after the biopsy and some bruising may be present. You may also notice a small amount of bleeding through the bandage, which is normal. Talk to your doctor about how much bleeding to expect.
