Follicular lymphoma patient. New doctor wants to do bone marrow test
I’ve finally changed hospitals, and the new doctor wants to take a bone marrow sample. Is this normal?? She said that since no biopsy of the swollen lymph node or bone marrow was ever taken (a sample was taken with a needle), no real diagnosis can be made. The once very large lymph node has since gotten so it’s not detectable by the eye or hand, so?…?My bloodwork isn’t showing anything new. Even so I’m pretty terrified right now.
