- Your provider will cover the biopsy site with a bandage after the procedure.
There may be some bleeding from the procedure that soaks through the bandage. Simply remove the bandage and apply a new cloth type bandaid.
Apply pressure if bleeding continues. If after 1 hour the bandage continues to soak through after multiple changes - call your provider.
- Refrain from doing strenuous activity for the rest of the day following your biopsy, such as running or heavy lifting.
Change bandages daily starting the day after the biopsy until the site is completely healed.
Daily bandage change should continue for 1 week.
