Blood is an important component of the human body. Complaints about the heart, stomach, and bones can be heard quite often, but those with blood cancer often experience no symptoms. Disorders of the blood are quite common and treatable if detected early.
Certain disorders may lead to serious diseases, like cancer of the blood. Leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma can attack the blood, bone marrow, or lymphatic system. Advances in the treatments of blood cancer have dramatically increased the survival rate yet the causes of this disease remain unknown.
