Blood cancer awareness: Common types, signs and treatment options

Blood cancer affects the body’s ability to fight against infection. 

For rapidly growing forms, it will need to be treated immediately, but slower growing forms are typically monitored, and treatment is not necessary right away.

There are three main types of blood cancer, leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, all of which affect the body’s blood cells.

Thousands of Americans lose their lives to blood cancer each year, but compared to other forms of cancer, a significantly higher amount of people live with blood cancer than other forms.
