I think this is a very noble act for any person to donate blood. Just think that you are helping few people and all the pain that you have is far less to what you are contributing to the social cause. Moreover the needle for blood suction is not seen by me because as I just watch the TV while they draw blood in the transfusion room.

I have a mass like tumor in my inner left knee that was diagnosed by a specialist. I have a photo of it if anyone wants to see it but he wants to go in with a needle and I guess suck it out. Then fill that void with my own blood. Will this procedure actually work? This thing in my knee is very painful.
