  • Bone marrow test – Your doctor may recommend a procedure to remove a sample of bone marrow from your hipbone. The bone marrow is removed using a long, thin needle. The sample is sent to a laboratory to look for leukaemia cells. Specialized tests of your leukemia cells may reveal certain characteristics that are used to determine your treatment options.
