My sister is suffering with frequent decrease in hemoglobin. We have conducted many test but we did not found any issue. Now doc is moved from some more test and sickle cell is one of them. She has only one issue of frequent low hemoglobin only. How serious it is eager to know. Do sickle cell disease required bone marrow transplant, is it a kind of cancer?
