Healthy adult bone marrow contains yellow fat cells, connective tissue, and red marrow that produces blood. The bone marrow of a healthy infant is primarily red due to active production of red cells necessary for growth.

What is red marrow conversion?

Normal bone marrowBone marrow aspiration Bone marrow biopsy Bone marrow culture Bone marrow from hip Bone marrow transplant has yellow marrow and red marrow. Yellow marrow is more of fat and red marrow is more of haematopoitic tissue. in infants marrow is predominantly hematopoietic with the exception of epiphyses & apophyses, which are predominantly fatty throughout life. with skeletal growth, red marrow is gradually replaced by fat. red marrow persistis longer in the vertebrae, pelvic bones, sternum, & proximal ends of the long tubular bones, during normal marrow conversion, residual islands of red marrow may subsist in the yellow marrow, as may fatty foci in red marrow.islands of red marrow residue may be a normal variant especially in obese women, cigarette smokers, marathon runners. It may be pathological some times in cases of hemolytic processes / anemia.


What are lytic lesions on the bones?

Does a bone marrow biopsy hurt?

I had one done earlier this week. It was not as bad as i had thought. My doctor numbed the area well and told me what he was doing at every point. There was a little pressure and we were done. I would say on a pain scale of 1 to 10 it was a 4Another answer. I don't want to scare you but it was the worst thing i have ever been through. Pain was a 9 out of 10. I hurt very badly and i hope i never have to do that again.


Does it take longer to get abnormal biopsy results than normal?

The bulk of the time it takes to get results from "surgical pathology" (e.g. biopsy results) resides in the time it takes for instruments to remove all the water from a sample and replace it with paraffin. Most routine processes takes 12 hours. Once the specimen is "processed" (about 12 hours from receipt, depending on the protocol), it then needs to be embedded, sectioned, stained and diagnosed. Depending on how the lab is configured, the process of embedding, sectioning, staining and ultimately the diagnosis may take anywhere from 6 to 24 hours. If a sample is clearly normal (benign), that result is usually available quickly (after the processing and above steps). If something appears to be unique, your primary pathologist may request a consultation, which can take from a few minutes (if the consultant is down the hall and not busy with her own cases) to a few days or weeks if a specialist is involved.

How are the findings of biopsy results interpreted?

Most biopsies are done to rule out endometrial cancer or endometrial hyperplasia. A normal result shows no cancerous or precancerous cells. Normal results also show that the uterine lining is changing at the proper rate. If it is, then the results of the biopsy are said to be "in-phase" because the tissue looks appropriate and has developed normally for the late phase of the menstrual cycle.- Lata Cherath, PhD

Is it common to have normal results from a colposcopy and leep procedure after an abnormal pap result?

It would be unusual to have a completely normal result on a colposcopy after a pap result severe enough to warrant a colpo. It is not unusual to have CIN I/mild dysplasia on colpo after a pap. It would be extremely unusual to have a LEEP after a normal biopsy. I suspect that there may have been some misunderstanding or miscommunication regarding your results. Please contact your health care provider to clarify (and get a copy of) your pap results and the results of your coloposcopy and LEEP biopsies.
