Blood cancers affect the production and function of your blood cells and often start in your bone marrow. In most cases, the normal blood cell development process is interrupted by uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. These cancerous cells prevent your blood from performing vital functions, like fighting off infection or clotting.
We have made strides in the diagnosis and treatment for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. The medical community is innovating new methods to treat these conditions swiftly and effectively. Unlike radiation and chemotherapy, targeted therapies match with your molecular profile to fight disease effectively while trying to minimize change to normal cells.
