Can bone cancer be detected by a blood test?

Complete blood count (CBC). This common blood test measures the amount of various types of blood cells in a sample of your blood. Blood cancers may be detected using this test if too many or too few of a type of blood cell or abnormal cells are found. A bone marrow biopsy may help confirm a diagnosis of a blood cancer.

  1. Pain. The earliest symptoms of bone cancer are pain and swelling where the tumor is located.
