Blood cancer

Blood cancers affect blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes. Cancerous cells prevent your blood from carrying out its normal functions. These include fighting off infections or preventing serious bleeding.

Types of blood cancer

Leukaemia affects the white blood cells that are made in the bone marrow. White blood cells are important because they protect the body from infection. Some types of leukaemia develop faster than others.

Each type of leukaemia needs different treatment.

Most thymus tumours develop at the front of the chest. In very rare cases, they can form in the neck. Cancer of the thymus gland is rare, and it can be difficult to diagnose and treat.

Lymphoma happens when B-lymphocytes, white blood cells that help fight infection, multiply abnormally. They gather in the lymph nodes (glands), often in the neck, armpits or groin. They can also collect in lymph nodes in other parts of your body. These abnormal cells stop the body from being able to fight infection.
