What is Blood Cancer and How Does it Develop?

You may have heard of cancer that affects organs like the lungs or breasts, but did you know that blood can also get cancer? In this article, we will explore what causes blood cancer and how it is treated.

Blood cancer occurs when the cells in your blood start to grow out of control. It’s different from other types of cancer because it affects the blood and bone marrow, where blood cells are produced. There are different types of blood cancer, including leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma, which all develop differently. Genetic factors, exposure to radiation, and certain medical conditions such as immune system disorders can contribute to the development of blood cancer. Knowing the risk factors can help you prevent or manage it if you already have a diagnosis.

Next up is learning to detect blood cancer early so that treatment can be given promptly.
