Low bone marrow: Not sure what you mean by low bone marrow. Was a bone marrow biopsy performed that shows less than the normal number of cells? Why was the bone marrow looked at in the first place? Please ask the question again with more details.

Low absolute reticulocyte count. Does it mean I have bone marrow or cancer problems?

No: The reticulocyte count is 1 test in evaluation for anemia. A low count does not mean cancer. It may indicate a marrow problem, but may indicate another problem. Please consult with a hematologist if anemia is the problem.

How can you get bladder cancer if you're constantly urinating?

In other ways.: The development of bladder cancer has little to do with the frequency of urination. It has everything to do with changes to the lining of the bladder, mostly due to exposure to toxins in the urine, such as from cigarette smoke & industrial chemicals. Inherited genetic factors play a role as well. For those that have developed bladder cancer, one of the symptoms can be frequent urination.

It depends: Results depend upon the stage of cancer. It is active for the adjuvant treatment and in metastatic disease. The side effects can include nausea and diarrhea. Occasionally there can be some blood count issues. The other side effect can be cold related temporary nerve injury that lasts a very short time. There also is a more long term nerve injury. Most people do tolerate this well. Hope this helps.

Yes, more w/u needed: Yes, low grade b cell lymphoproliferative disorder a.K.A lymphoma is a type of blood cancer. There are many types of b cell lymphoproliferative disorder from the low grade/less agressive to high grade/more agressive. Here, i think, more work up needs to be done- particularly to classify what type of lymphoproliferative disorder this is and also how much tumor burden and prognostication. D/w md.
