Your treatment plan may include routine blood work to determine whether you will receive chemotherapy, or growth factor shots. After reviewing the results, your oncologist will instruct your healthcare team on how to proceed with your treatment.

Bone Marrow Biopsy

Bone marrow produces platelets as well as red and white blood cells. If abnormal types or numbers of red or white blood cells are found in a complete blood count test, a bone marrow biopsy may be the next course of action. This procedure also helps your physician determine whether other diseases are present in the bone marrow.

When a bone marrow biopsy is performed, soft tissue is removed from inside the bone—typically the hip bone. The procedure may take place in your healthcare provider’s office or in a hospital. After the area is cleansed and a local anesthetic is injected to numb the skin, a biopsy needle is inserted into the bone. The technician will gently rotate the needle or insert an instrument into the needle to obtain a tiny bone marrow sample. Once the needle has been removed, pressure is applied to the biopsy site to stop the bleeding, followed by a bandage.

Although not every patient experiences discomfort, you may find the procedure slightly uncomfortable because it is not possible to anesthetize the bone’s interior.

If you are pregnant or allergic to any medications, please inform your healthcare provider. Also list your medications and indicate whether you have bleeding problems. You will be required to sign a consent form prior to the procedure
