Starts in the bone marrow most blood cancers are also called hematologic cancers. When the abnormal blood cells start growing out of control, interrupting the function of normal blood cells, which fight off infection and produce new blood cells then the condition, is called blood cancer.

Here are three main types of blood cancer:

Leukaemia: It originates in the blood and bone marrow. When the body creates too much abnormal white blood cells and interferes with the bone marrow’s ability to make red blood cells and platelets then the condition is called leukaemia.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma: This type of blood cancer develops in the lymphatic system from cells called lymphocytes this is a type of white blood cell that helps the body fight infections.

Hodgkin lymphoma: This type of blood cancer developed in the lymphatic system from cells called lymphocytes. Hodgkin lymphoma is characterized by the presence of an abnormal lymphocyte called the Reed-Sternberg cell.

Multiple myelomas: Begins in the blood’s plasma cells in this, a type of white blood cell made in the bone marrow.

There are many types of cancer and the treatment depends on what kind of cancer you are suffering from. The treatment of ever cancer comes with its own benefits, risks and side effects.
