Hi.  Yellow marrow is the part of bone marrow that contains more fat than blood cells.  The red marrow is the part which is more cellular. As far as I know, the yellow marrow is not indicative of any cancer.  Cancer is detected in the bone marrow by the presence of atypical cells - those with an abnormal appearance compared with the usual marrow cells.  Bone marrow color doesn't have anything to do with the presence or absence of cancer.
