A CBC+PS test is a simple blood test wherein a needle is used to draw a small amount of blood from a vein in your arm. While the needle stick may cause some discomfort, the test itself is generally considered safe and carries minimal risk of complications or side effects. Some people may experience mild bruising or soreness at the site of the needle stick, but this usually goes away quickly.
