I had a hip biopsy of a kidney cancer tumor in the hip. I was told the pain would go away in a couple of weeks. It is still hurting about the same as when it was done. Anyone can tell me anything about a hip biopsy?

I don't know a whole lot about it, but I do know that after my mother had hers she had pain for quite some time. They did a biopsy on a spot she had on her hip instead of doing a kidney biopsy. Good luck to you, it will get better eventually!

I had a tumour on my ankle when I was first diagnosed in 2007 and I had a bone biopsey which involved taking a sample of the bone from which they were able to confirm the type of cancer. The pain in my ankle was very painful and I was unable to walk. My Oncologist put me onto Interferon an over a period of 3 months I could feel the tumour reducing in size and as it reduced the pain did as well.
Aitogether I had to use crutches for nearly 6 months but since then I have been walking normally.
Your hip biopsey like my bone biopsy will nt stop the pain it is only the following treatment now they know what they have to treat.
