Question Bone Marrow Test????

Can someone please tell me what to expect with a bone marrow test (biopsy and aspiration of fluid).
My doctor did explain the procedure to me a little bit. What else are they looking for besides leukemia?
I have a low WBC in the 2.3 range.
Years ago I had a blood transfusion (a few units) and they are also looking at other possibilities as to my low WBC, but didn't elaborate.
I also have other health problems and I am on medication all of which they said are not a factor in my low WBC.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
