What are the side effects of a lung biopsy?
Risks associated with lung biopsy. There is a small risk that the patient may experience complications such as an infection, pneumonia, excessive blood loss (hemorrhage), or air leak from the lungs. In extreme cases, an air leak can lead to a collapsed lung ( pneumothorax) when the leaked air becomes trapped between the lung and chest wall.
