Wonderful news! I’m sorry the core biopsy is so sore now - mine always take a couple of days to settle. It’s almost as though the ‘bruising’ needs to work it’s way out.

Wonderful news, you did the right thing checking it all out but I'm so glad you got the all clear. At least now it helps you know what lumps are "normal" for you and then you can easily monitor for any change that needs checking down the track. Its always good to have that baseline to go off

Just went on your roller-coaster ride here, SL - very glad that you got the all clear.

I have a follow up tomorrow morning with GP. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced increased pain at the site of the core biopsy when breathing in and a bit of a cough?

Yes I have. Not on my breast, but I have had a biopsy "elsewhere" that hurt way more in the following weeks as it healed.
As long as you don't see any sign of infection, like redness or puss, then I would think of it as normal as your body heals.
If you are concerned though, back to the GP.

Thanks. I had to put off the GP review as work is just too full on this week. The biopsy was quite deep into the breast (close to the chest wall) so I think that is why it hurts when breathing. There were 8 samples taken, so I guess that is a fair bit of healing to do.

Obviously I am not a doctor, but yes, that sounds painful.
If it has healed and there's no open wound, you could try soft massage to help the scar tissue?
