If I were him I would accept the doctors' prescript
ion to do a biopsy. It is not a very big deal, not painful just irritations. If he is afraid, the doctor can always use anesthetics. The important thing is to make sure the preparation for biopsy is done correctly, i.e., make sure he cleans out his bowel sufficiently to minimize infection. Make sure he takes the antibiotics as prescribed by the doctor before and after the biopsy, etc.
Good luck and hope he won't be joining us here.
