About ligament injuries

Ligaments are tough, flexible tissues which connect one bone to another bone and hold them in place. When too much force is applied to a ligament, it can become injured or torn. This makes the joint unstable.

Need to know

Symptoms of leukaemia may include:

  • tiredness
  • pale skin
  • bleeding and bruising
  • frequent infections
  • swollen glands
  • limb pains
  • fever

Many of these symptoms can be caused by the increased number of abnormal white blood cells and a decrease in the amount of normal blood cells in the bloodstream and bone marrow. Your consultant will discuss your symptoms with you.

We offer a number of investigations and tests to confirm a diagnosis of leukaemia, including:

  • bone marrow biopsy
  • blood tests

To confirm what type of leukaemia you have, a bone marrow sample will usually need to be taken, commonly from the hip bone. This test is conducted under local anaesthetic and takes around ten minutes. You may experience some discomfort but it will pass quickly.

At HCA Healthcare UK we provide a comprehensive treatment pathway, including JACIE international accredited stem cell and bone marrow transplant services. Your treatment plan will be tailored to your individual medical requirements. Your consultant will talk through your diagnosis and treatment options with you in detail to help you make an informed decision about your care.
