Has anyone experienced burning pain during a PET scan? Like a burning sensation?

Hi. I just had a pet scan done to see if my breast cancer has spread to my lungs and they are pretty sure it has. I will need a lung biopsy now. If anyone out there has had a lung biopsy and has any information for me, please respond as I am pretty worried about the risks now, but have to have it. As for the pet scan, I did not feel any burning or anything during my pet scan. I think that I read somewhere that some people may feel some burning though, so I don't think it is uncommon. Hope this helps you. Patti

Thanks Patty, I know a friend who had a lung biopsy. He made out well, he didn't have any problems. I wish you the best.

I had a PET today and I felt some sensation in my chest.  I hope this is normal whether there is presence of cancer or not
