How can a bone marrow match be determined and what is the procedure?

There is a very sick young boy in need of a urgent bone marrow transplant and i would like to see if i’m the match he needs
but wanted to know first how involved the transplant is and
would there be any risk to myself for giving him my bone marrow. Is it painful..etc ?? Please note the above questions too.

Thank you xx

Compatibility is determined by a blood test. Click on the link below to get your other answers. If you require more, run a search for “patient information on bone marrow transplantation”. It’s also called a BMT for short.
