September is national blood cancer awareness month. It is a great time to educate people about blood cancer and how blood cancer is diagnosed and treated. The month of September was chosen because in the United States it is the biggest blood drive month of the year. Many people are donating blood, so it’s a great time to get the word out about blood cancers. During September, we will be focusing on the following blood cancers: leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Of course, this month is a great time to get people aware of all blood cancer types.
Blood cancer, also known as hematological cancer, is cancer that starts in your blood cells. Hematological cancer can cause symptoms in your blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and other parts of your body. There are different types of blood cancer, including Leukemia – This type of blood cancer starts in your bone marrow and affects the production of white blood cells. Lymphoma – This type of blood cancer starts in the lymphatic system, which is a group of organs that helps fight infections. Myeloma – This type of blood cancer starts in the plasma cells in your bone marrow. Lymphoma and myeloma are types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The different types of blood cancers are all different. They can cause different symptoms and affect different parts of your body. They can also be treated in different ways.
How blood cancers are treated?
Blood cancers are treated differently, depending on the type of blood cancer. The type of treatment you will receive depends on where cancer started. In fact, sometimes it’s not even clear where cancer started, which makes treatment more complex. For example, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a type of blood cancer that affects the bone marrow and blood. Some people with leukemia have ALL that started in the bone marrow, while others have leukemia that started in the blood. Some people have leukemia that started in both the bone marrow and the blood. It’s important to know whether cancer started in the bone marrow or the blood to figure out the best treatment. There are different types of blood cancers and they are all treated differently.
What causes blood cancer?
Cancer is a disease in which the body’s own cells begin to grow out of control. Healthy cells grow and multiply into new cells as the body needs them. But cancer cells keep growing, even when they have no purpose. Some cancer cells also have the ability to travel to other parts of the body and start new tumors. Cancer cells can also invade healthy parts of the body. So, what causes blood cancer? The causes of blood cancer can be broken down into three main groups: inherited, environmental, and lifestyle.
Is blood cancer curable?
Blood cancer is curable, but the term “cure,” in medicine, is not a black and white one. A cure, in medicine, means that there is no evidence of the original disease after treatment. In the context of blood cancer, that means that after treatment, there are no cancerous cells in the blood. Many types of blood cancer are curable. This includes acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and other types of blood cancer. Blood cancer is curable because it can be detected in the early stages when it is most treatable. Blood cancer is curable because doctors are able to identify a patient’s particular type of cancer and create a customized treatment plan.
