Types of blood cancers
Leukemia - Leukemia is cancer that starts in the bone marrow. When you have leukemia, your body overproduces blood cells that are abnormal. These blood cells don’t work correctly and interfere with the production of other blood cells. Leukemia cells don’t normally form tumors, but they are able to travel all over your body in your bloodstream, meaning they can reach almost any organ in your body.
Our cancer experts have a vast amount of experience in diagnosing leukemia and developing a treatment plan that is customized to your specific type of leukemia.
Lymphoma – Lymphoma is a type of cancer that starts in the lymphatic system. With both Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, cells in the lymphatic system—most often in the lymph nodes—grow at an abnormally fast rate. The mass of extra cells form a tumor—sometimes in the spleen or in other organs.
Multiple myeloma – Multiple myeloma is cancer of the plasma cells. Healthy plasma cells are part of your immune system and help fight infection. When you have multiple myeloma, your body overproduces plasma cells that are abnormal. These cells collect in the bone marrow and the outer layer of the bone, pushing out the healthy plasma cells. People with multiple myeloma have disease involving multiple sites at the time of diagnosis.
