Hello and thanks for submitting your question.

I have to say that it is a bit unusual that after 2 months the result of the biopsy is not back. I recommend you inquire of your physician as to the status of the tissue review.

It is not uncommon for post-biopsy pain and swelling. The area can become somewhat firm as well. Typically a small collection of fluid will form in the area of the biopsy. Over time there will be some scar tissue which will form. The pain is usually due to some inflammation in the area and I expect that it will improve gradually with some time. You could try using some warm compresses on the area or perhaps an oral anti-inflammatory medication which could help the pain as well.

I hope that by now you have the biopsy results and are working with your physician closely.

Thank you again for submitting your query to healthcaremagic.
