Myeloproliferative Disease Diagnosis

At MD Anderson, we have extensive expertise in diagnosing myeloproliferative disease, as well as the latest technology. Our hematopathologists are among a few in the nation who specialize in myeloproliferative diseases, giving them the knowledge to pinpoint your exact diagnosis.

Diagnosis of myeloproliferative disease can be challenging. It often does not have symptoms in the early stages, and when it does they are often mistaken for signs of other diseases. A doctor must have a high degree of experience in MPD to make an accurate diagnosis.

If MPD is suspected, blood tests will be ordered. The blood test results can validate the suspicion, but a bone marrow biopsy may be required to definitively confirm the diagnosis.
