TRUS biopsy

Q | are there any side effects?

A | Common side effects include:

  • Blood when you open your bowels this should settle within a few days
  • Blood in the urine this can occur occasionally. Drink plenty of water and, again, this should settle after a few days
  • Blood in the semen you may find that the semen fluid is stained a red colour after this procedure. This may take many weeks to settle and is not of concern. The red colour becomes a brown stain before it disappears
