2. How do I know if I'm in need of a bone marrow biopsy?

Don't worry; a complex test like this is not prescribed without reason. A conclusion of performing it is not an easy one, as the doctor will decide upon it only after some more regular tests. He usually orders it after suspecting something abnormal going into your bloodstream. Usually, if you have too much or too low concentrations of platelets or red blood cells, you need it. The doctor recommends the biopsy well in advance, a few days at least. This is for you to prepare mentally and physically, taking all the necessary steps.
