Following imaging of the prostate with the ultrasound probe, a very tiny, thin needle is
used to anesthetize with Xylocaine on both sides of the prostate at the top and bottom.
Following this, under ultrasound guidance, using a very small biopsy needle, is then
inserted into the prostate to determine precise locations of the prostate. Typically 12
biopsies are taken. Following a total of 30 minutes procedure, the patient is able to leave
the office and return home. This entire procedure is done under local anesthesia.
Following a biopsy, a patient can experience blood in the urine, bowel, or semen for any
time up to a month.
