Hello and Welcome Coclina -

Since it has been several days since you posted, hopefully the pain has subsided and you received the biopsy report.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to guess what's going on without knowing much more about the area, but I hope your doctor was able to address your concerns.

Please follow up to let us know what you found out and how you are feeling. Hoping for good news,
