My husband (71 yrs. old) is scheduled for a prostate

My husband (71 yrs. old) is scheduled for a prostate biopsy tomorrow -- because of a slow elevation in his PSA. He was told not to take any blood thinner drugs -- however, he is on Blood Pressure medication. Is it safe to allow the procedure while on BP meds. Also, are there any side effects from having the biopsy that we should seek some type of alternative rather than proceeding with the biopsy. His PSA is 7 and there are no other reasons given for the procedure. Thank you so much.
