How Long Does It Take The Average Breast Biopsy To Heal?

Is there a time limit for the average breast biopsy to heal?

Answer

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
