What is Blood Cancer?

Blood Cancer refers to a condition when your blood cells grow rapidly in an uncontrolled manner. There are three different types of blood cancer:

Leukemia: This cancer occurs when there’s a rapid production of abnormal blood cells in the bone marrow. This condition affects the bone marrow’s ability to produce red blood cells and platelets.

Lymphoma: This cancer impacts the lymphatic system’s ability to remove excess fluid from your body and produce 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 cancer damages the plasma cells, which are white blood cells responsible for the production of disease-fighting antibodies in the body.
