Hey guys, I am a member of another prostate cancer group on facebook and was asked if a prostate biopsy hurt, since I have had 4 already and am scheduled for my 5th on Feb 21, I think I might be able to answer this question and being in a gay group I can kinda describe what I think it feels like. My very first one my doctor told me that it would feel like I got stung by a rubber band, and it did. I was numbed up and it was very uncomfortable but the noise it made was more disturbing then the actual process.
The next 3 and I guess all future ones were done with The Artemis. This requires a MRI on your prostate to hunt for 'hot spots' on your prostate and the results are fed into the machine and it takes the samples right from the hot spots. My last one they took, I believe 13 samples and I gotta tell you, it was no picnic. He numbed me up and it really didn't hurt, it was as I can best describe, like getting butt fucked by a Alfa top who is only interested in getting his load off. Of course the doctor was as gentle as he could be and explained everything to me as he was doing it, I guess trying to take my mind off of what was happening. It seemed like it went on for hours but most likely only went on for an hour. Then after it was over, just like a man, he told me I could clean up and get dressed. So it really doesn't hurt, it just is.
Anyway, there are guys on here much worse off then I am so I am not complaining about my status or anything like that, I am just saying that's my experience with a biopsy...…
Anybody care to jump in
