BLOOD CANCER OVERVIEW

As its name suggests, this type of cancer affects the production and function of your blood cells. This type of cancer starts in bone marrow which is the integral source of blood production. Stem cells in your bone marrow mature and develop into three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. In case of cancer, the blood production process is interrupted due to the growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. The various types include Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma.

Leukemia - This type of cancer is caused by the rapid production of abnormal blood cells in the bone marrow. These abnormal blood cells affect the bone marrow's ability of the production of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Lymphoma - This type of blood cancer affects the lymphatic system, which is responsible for the removal of excess fluids from your body and producing immune cells. Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that fights infection. Abnormal lymphocytes become lymphoma cells, which grow uncontrollably in your lymph nodes and other tissues.

Myeloma - This type of blood cancer affects the plasma cells, which are white blood cells responsible for the production of disease-fighting antibodies in the body. Myeloma affects the production of plasma cells which results in weak immune system.

Some of the common blood cancer symptoms include:

  • Weakness, Fatigue, and Malaise
  • Shortness of breath
  • Excessive or easy bruising
  • Bleeding gums
  • Recurrent infections or fever
  • Minimal body strain results in bone fracture
  • Sweating of body during night
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent vomiting sensations
  • Anorexia
  • Lymph node (gland) enlargement
  • Lumps or abdominal distension due to enlarged abdominal organs
  • Abdominal pain, Bone pain and Back pain
  • Delirium and confusion
  • Abnormal bleeding in gums nose and cuts, which will lead to platelet reduction
  • Headaches along with visual difficulties
  • Occurrence of fine rashes on dark spots
  • Decreased urination and difficulty while urinating

Although the specific cause of blood cancer is unknown, various factors are associated with its onset. Some causes are:

  • Aging
  • Family history
  • Weak immune system
  • Certain infections
  • Symptoms and Causes of Blood Cancer
  • What Are the Treatments Available For Blood Cancer
  • Know the Early Signs of Leukemia
  • Do Blood Cancer Treatments Affect Fertility
  • Know More on Blood Cancer aka Leukemia (Infographic)
  • Leukemia and its treatment by chemotheraphy
  • Is there Any Treatment Available for Multiple Myeloma
  • Is Your Immune System Responsible for Causing Lymphatic Cancer

It is a medical procedure performed to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow . Bone marrow can be damaged by disease or infection. This procedure involves transplanting blood stem cells.

Bone marrow creates the following in the blood

  • red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients throughout the body
  • white blood cells, which fight infection
  • platelets, which are responsible for the formation of clots

A bone marrow transplant replaces your damaged stem cells with healthy cells. This helps your body make enough white blood cells, platelets, or red blood cells to avoid infections, bleeding disorders, or anemia.

  • Aplastic Anemia - marrow stops making new blood cells
  • cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma
  • damaged bone marrow due to chemotherapy
  • congenital neutropenia, which is an inherited disorder that causes recurring infections
  • sickle cell anemia, which is an inherited blood disorder that causes misshapen red blood cells
  • thalassemia, which is an inherited blood disorder where the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin, an integral part of red blood cells

Autologous Transplants - Autologous transplants involve harvesting person’s own’s cell before beginning treatment

Allogeneic Transplants - Use of cells from a donor. The donor must be a close genetic match.
