What is blood cancer ?

Reported by Blood Cancer | January 28th, 2018 @ 10:59 AM

Blood cancer start in your bone marrow where blood is produced.Your blood is made up of different cell types including red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets.They all originally come from stem cells, which have the potential to develop into any type of blood cell as they divide and mature.

There are three types of blood cancer.

1. Leukaemia
a type of blood cancer found in your blood and bone marrow, is caused by the rapid production of abnormal white blood cells. The high number of abnormal white blood cells are not able to fight infection, and they impair the ability of the bone marrow to produce red blood cells and platelets.
2. Lymphoma
Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that affects the lymphatic system. Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that fight infection. Abnormal lymphocytes become lymphoma cells, which multiply and collect in your lymph nodes and other tissues. Over time, these cancerous cells impair your immune system.

  1. Myeloma
    Myeloma is a type of blood cancer that affects plasma cells. Plasma cells are white blood cells that produce disease- and infection-fighting antibodies in your body. Myeloma cells prevent the normal production of antibodies, leaving your body’s immune system weakened and susceptible to infection.
