Nervous about biopsy. Any advice ?

Posted , 1 user is following.

So I’ve had this bump behind my ear for about a year and a half. It was diagnosed by my doctor that it’s an enlarged lymph node. We’re not really sure why it’s still there (went through all sorts of meds to see if it’d help. It didn’t). I’m having a core biopsy at the end of this month and I’m wondering how much that hurts ? 

   Thank you,
