In brief: Yes

A bone marrow biopsy is needed due to the presence of neutropenia if it is otherwise unexplained.
In addition, the presence of the lump in the neck is worrisome and should be, if needed, biopsied. If the neck node is + for lymphoma a bone marrow would be required to see if there is lymphoma in the bone marrow. Hope this helps and good luck.
