Blood cancers

Blood cancers – such as lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma – occur when your body makes abnormal blood cells that grow rapidly and out of control, making it difficult for your bone marrow and lymphatic system to work the way it should.

How is it diagnosed?

Blood cancers can be detected by blood tests. Pathologists look for specific signs and markers of cancer in your blood.

How is it treated?

Treatment for blood cancers may involve chemotherapy or other targeted drug therapy, radiotherapy and/or stem cell transplant.
