    No, Tracy, everyone has a different experience, especially since there are different types of biopsies, some more "invasive" than others. And it depends what you mean by heal. How long does it take for the scar to form? For it to stop hurting? I'd say anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, ON AVERAGE, understanding that others' experience may be very different - and that's OK, the amount of time is just right for the person healing. - PJH

      Hi - There's no real "average" when it comes to healing; each of our bodies will heal at the exact rate it wants to heal. Some women feel fine within a day; for others, the soreness lingers longer. Hopefully you'll find yourself in the former category! You may find our post on breast biopsies helpful. Good luck - I hope you get the results you want. PJH
