Its unfortunate that your sister is suffering with blood cancer. As per history she might having cml, and receiving imatinib for treatment. Imatinib is known to cause musculoskeletal pain. Some time simple analgesic is helpful in getting relief of pain but many a times is due to more complex process that involve calcium and phosphate handling of body. I strongly advise you to consult your primary oncologist/hematologist, he might ask for some investigation, and may try to modify dose (depend on recent bcr-abl copy number). Hope this will help you.

Some faulty genes that increase the risk of cancer can be passed on from parent to child. These are called inherited cancer genes. This occurs when there is a mistake or a fault in the genes in an egg or sperm cell. Then the gene fault can be passed on to children, let's discuss your concern in detail for better understanding.

What is the treatment of dengue
and what is the platelets?
what happened when we suffered from blood cancer?
Treatment of dengue consists of pain medications and fluids treatment includes fluids and pain relievers. Severe cases require hospital care. The platelets are the cells that circulate within our blood and bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessel. When you get a cut, for example, the platelets bind to the site of the damaged vessel, thereby causing a blood clot to stop us from bleeding.

Blood cancer is not a contagious disease. You can stay with her. However as her immunity is suppressed, follow hand washing and barrier nursing.
