Biopsy of internal tissue is ultrasound guided and usually there is no internal bleeding.
As for the relief from chemotherapy side effects, antiemetics would be given for the nausea and vomiting. You might read many things online for relief from chemotherapy side effects, but none of them are medically proven and usually involve use of supplementary products, instead of medication.
