Blood Cancer - 3 Most Common Types + Signs That Indicate It!

Blood Cancer - 3 Most Common Types + Signs That Indicate It!

Cancer occurs when there is an uncontrolled growth of cells in the body. Blood cancer affects three major components of the blood, namely white blood cells and marrow, the lymphocytes, and plasma. These are respectively known as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. The most commonly affected are the white blood cells.

Symptoms for each of these types differ; the same have been listed below:

Leukemia: Leukemia can be acute or chronic. In acute cases, the symptoms are more pronounced than the chronic ones. If the white blood cells are affected, then it causes the following:

  1. Shortness of breath
  2. Anemia
  3. Extreme tiredness and lack of energy
  4. Profuse sweating
  5. Increased susceptibility to infections
  6. Profuse bleeding during menstruation in women
  7. Swollen lymph nodes
  8. Headache and blurring of vision
  9. Bones and joint pain
  10. Chills and night sweats

The acronym TEST helps remember the symptoms of leukemia – tiredness, excessive sweating, sore joints, and terrible cases of bleeding. As white blood cells are involved in fighting infections, these individuals are also prone to easily develop infections.

Lymphoma: A type of white blood cells, lymphocytes help in fighting infections. Excessive growth of these leads to enlarged lymph nodes, which is often painless. However, other typical symptoms include:

  1. Severe coughing
  2. Swollen lymph nodes which are often generalized
  3. Severe weight loss, which is often unexplained
  4. Fever
  5. Sudden chills and night sweats
  6. Extreme/severe fatigue, even with minimal activity
  7. Abdominal fullness
  8. Itching of the skin (again unexplained)

Myeloma: This form of cancer affects the plasma, which are responsible for carrying the blood cells throughout the body. Multiple myeloma is the most common cancer in this group, and this is generally a chronic condition. Symptoms are atypical and include:

  1. Generalized weakness and fatigue
  2. Increased incidence of infections
  3. Shortness of breath
  4. Chest pain
  5. Pain in the back region
  6. Kidney issues, which can be indicative to look for myeloma

When a patient presents with a combination of the above symptoms, a detailed history is very helpful to come to a sort of conclusion. The clinical findings are then corroborated with blood screening and tests which will help pin down the diagnosis.

There are about 130+ varieties of blood cancer, but the above three are the most common ones. Once suspected, it is very easy to diagnose blood cancer with blood tests. If a person has a family history, then they should watch out for early symptoms of blood cancer, and should immediately seek medical attention when in doubt. The most common form of therapy is chemotherapy as it is a generalized condition, and radiotherapy is more suitable for localized cancers.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What are risk factors for cancer? How is cancer treated? What are the side effects of cancer treatment.

Oncologist, Faridabad
Tobacco chewing or smoking, pollution pesticides radiation exposure, alcohol for some, hormonal disbslance, some viruses like hiv, hpv ebv etc. And some times genetic predisposition. Cancer is treated by mainly three methods surgery, radiotherapy chemotherapy. Treatment is usually targeted to kill cancer cells, but cancer arises from our body cells which become uncontrolled and hence wider area of treatment is covered. It may lead to nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, hair loss, skin changes and sometimes organ dysfunction and disfigurement. Nowadays we practice targeted treatment but only when disease is focused and early then we try to treat only affected area.

Patient has been diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Grade 3 - Nottingham Histologic Score - 3 + 3 + 3 = 9. Can you suggest the prognosis? The tumor is NOS in right break measuring 24-22-14 mm. I have attached the report also. Please let me know if it is curable and what are the chances of relapse.

MBBs, MD - Medicine, DM - Oncology
Oncologist, Cuttack
In Breast cancer prognosis depends upon age, tumour size, nodal status, grade, ER/PR and Her 2 nu status, stage of the disease etc. As the stage increases recurrence risk is also increases. ER/PR positivity is a good prognostic factor and Her 2 positivity is a poor prognostic factor. As I have not mentioned the correct stage and other factors it is difficult to predict the survival as well as relapse.

What are complete cancer screening what are its benefits and what is its cost in bangalore.

General Physician, Delhi
Several potential harms must be considered against any potential benefit of screening for cancer. Although most cancer screening tests are noninvasive or minimally invasive, some involve small risks of serious complications that may be immediate (e.g. Perforation with colonoscopy) cost depends on packages and varies with hospital to hospital.

Lung Cancer: Symptoms & Causes

MD - Pulmonary, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Lung Cancer: Symptoms & Causes

Lungs are the most important organ of our body that has the responsibility of taking in the oxygen and releasing out carbon dioxide. When cancer develops in it, the entire body gets imbalanced. Lung cancer leads to more death than any other type of cancer, which is why identifying the symptoms and knowing the causes are instrumental in obtaining a timely diagnosis as well as in prevention of this disease.

Symptoms of Lung Cancer

In the early stages:

  1. Persistent coughing

  2. Chest pain

  3. Bleeding

  4. Fatigue

  5. Loss of appetite

  6. Sudden weight loss

  7. Headaches

  8. Coughing up blood

In the later stages:

  1. Bone pain

  2. Joint pain

  3. Facial paralysis

  4. Neck swelling

  5. Blood clotting

  6. Weakness

  7. Sever chest pain

Causes of Lung Cancer:

  • Smoking: People who smoke are more prone to lung cancer. With the increase in the number of cigarettes you smoke, your chances of getting lung cancer increase too. People who don't smoke but are surrounded by the smokers also have high chances of being affected by this form of cancer.
  • Exposure to Asbestos: Asbestos is a group of mineral, which is present naturally in the environment. Lung cancer can occur due to the inhalation and ingestion of asbestos fibers.
  • Exposure to Ranon Gas: Ranon is a radioactive gas, which is formed naturally on decaying of radioactive elements. It is found in low levels in the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Consumption of air and water having this gas leads to lung cancer.
  • High Levels of Air Pollution: Presence of high levels of dust particles and pollutants in the air that we breathe can cause lung cancer. 1-2% of lung cancer is caused because of it.
  • High Levels of Arsenic in Drinking Water: Consuming water with arsenic content is harmful as it directly affects the lungs and when the arsenic content is too high, it may lead to lung cancer.
  • Exposure to Chemicals: Exposure to certain chemicals like uranium, coal products, gasoline, diesel exhaust and mustard gas can also cause lung cancer.

Family History of Lung Cancer: Chances of getting lung cancer increase if your parents, child or siblings are already prone to lung cancer.

What is the main reason for bleeding in motion? This is not frequently but I got it last year twice and after one year in this summer again one time bleeding in motion. Before Bleeding even in last year I ate spicy food like biryani. When I searched for this in Google its saying it may lead to cancer. So kindly let me know what's happening to me!

General Surgeon, Delhi
You might be having some degree of haemorrhoids (piles). You must avoid constipation. Take plenty of fluids and fruits daily. Avoid non- veg. Take isafgole 3tsf daily with a glass of water daily especially when you happen to take spicy food like biryani. In case you don't find any relief, consult a surgeon.

I am having breast pain after my boyfriend sucked them. It has been 2 days now. I have done hot water with salt fermentation also with ice but it didn't showed any result and pain increased after that. Please help me any suggestions or medications.

Physiotherapist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi it might have caused muscles strain. Continue with hot water fermentation for 5 more days. Along with that relaxed breast massage for 3 to 5 minutes with coconut oil. If still issue consult me.
