Your healthcare provider will tell you when to shower and remove your dressing.
It is unlikely you will experience any problems following the biopsy. However, should you notice prolonged bleeding, unusual discharge or drainage, a foul odor, or any firmness, redness or warmth at the site, inform your healthcare provider. You will also need to notify him or her if you develop a fever of 100 degrees or above.
A nurse will review all instructions with you and give you a written copy.
