Brief Answer:
Depends on the nature of lesion

Detailed Answer:

Bone marrow edema was actually a old word used in imaging context that means after Ultrasound and MRI reporting. Now a days called BM lesions.
This literally means excessive water signals in the marrow space on magnetic resonance imaging or ultrasound.
THe water signals are seen in non serious progressive conditions like arthritis, Rheumatoid. They are also seen in serious conditions like bone tumors as well.
Hence it is important to understand the nature of lesion and disease process to cure it.

I am a 52 year old female. 6 years post hysterectomy. No Ovaries. I am on meds for depression and antiflamattories for severe shoulder tendinitis (both sides). Recent MRI suggested possible anemia due to dark bone marrow appearance. Starting a few days ago I smell all milk as sour. Even cheese. My family insists the milk is NOT sour so it has to be me. I have quit all milk products to avoid the smell.
