Bone Biopsy

Had bone scan at 12 month all clear due to pain and it showed a hot spot on my Humerus. Had X-ray which didn’t help so went for an MRI scan. Doctors say they can see what looks like a mass but it’s not typical of a breast cancer bone met neither how it presents or the location. They are now saying they need to carry out a bone biopsy. Anyone had any similar experience of this please?
