Most blood cancers start in the bone marrow, which is where blood is made. Blood cancers happen when abnormal blood cells start growing out of control. This stops the normal function of blood cells, which fight infection and make new blood cells.
Other blood disorders treated at the Hematology Program include:
Myelodysplastic diseases: A group of disorders that affect the normal function of the bone marrow, which is responsible for the production of blood cells.
White blood cell disorders: Either too few or too many white blood cells are produced. White blood cells help the body fight infection.
Aplastic anemia: The body is unable to produce enough red blood cells.
Hereditary Blood Disorders
Blood Clotting and Bleeding Disorders
