I've just had my 4th biopsy but this time a clip was inserted and I'm not sure if this is to stay there or will it be removed? Really worried this time.

It will stay there, unless you need to have some tissue removed.  It is common practice to place a clip for future reference. The clip is inert and harmless.  I've had two biopsies, and have two clips.  Nothing to worry about.

I've had biopsies starting over 10 years ago,, that was my 4th one but never had a clip put in. Thank you very much for your help. I appreciate it a lot.

Yes, I see you are in Ireland.....maybe they do things differently there?  Sending you wishes for a benign result.
