EdhaCare - Blood Cancer Treatment In India


Blood Cancer Treatment - Overview

The functioning and synthesis of your blood cells are both affected by blood cancer.

It occurs in the bone marrow, which is a vital component of blood formation.

It is essentially a collection of malignancies that wreak havoc on the patient's health and well-being by preventing them from functioning normally, often resulting in fatality.

Your bone marrow stem cells mature and differentiate into three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

The blood production process is disrupted in cancer patients due to the formation of an abnormal form of blood cell.

Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma are some of the several forms.

The good news is that blood cancer treatment is now widely available and quickly evolving.

While some slow-growing blood cancers can be treated with daily medication, those with faster-growing acute blood cancers may require more stronger(intensive) treatment.

Your doctors' recommendations for blood cancer treatment will be based on the type of blood cancer you have, your health, and your preferences.

You may receive only one form of treatment or a combination of treatments, or you may never require treatment or choose not to have treatment.

Blood Cancer Treatment - Symptoms

A kind of cancer that affects the blood, bone marrow, or lymphatic system is known as blood cancer.

The following are some of the most prevalent signs and symptoms of blood cancer:

  • Fatigue, Weakness, and Malaise
  • Shortness of breath
  • Minimal body strain results in bone fractures
  • Excessive or easy bruising
  • Bleeding gums
  • Recurrent infections or fever
  • Sweating of body during night
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent vomiting sensations
  • Anorexia
  • Lymph node (gland) enlargement
  • Lumps or abdominal distension due to enlarged abdominal organs
  • Abdominal pain, Bone pain and Back pain
  • Delirium and confusion
  • Irregular bleeding in gums nose and cuts, which will lead to platelet reduction
  • Headaches along with visual difficulties
  • Occurrence of fine rashes on dark spots
  • Decreased urination and difficulty while urinating

Blood Cancer Treatment - Pre-Procedure

Because people get blood cancer in a number of ways, your doctor will order a few tests to assess the stage of your disease before beginning therapy.

Before being transferred to the hospital for extra tests, your doctor will recommend blood tests to gather more information.

A routine blood test is also recommended for some patients.

Blood Cancer Treatment - During Procedure

Stem cell transplantation

A stem cell transplant is a procedure that uses healthy bone marrow to replace diseased bone marrow.

This type of blood cancer treatment involves administering strong doses of chemotherapy to destroy abnormal cells in your bone marrow or lymph nodes, followed by obtaining healthy blood-forming stem cells through a vein, which will eventually generate new blood cells that are injected back into the patient's body. The goal for these new stem cells is for them to begin producing healthy blood cells.

The blood-forming stem cells utilised in transplants are obtained from another person's bone marrow, peripheral regions, or even from the blood of the umbilical cord.


Chemotherapy is one of the major forms of the leukaemia treatment.

Chemicals are used to kill leukaemia cells in this treatment.

It is a less intense treatment that usually has fewer negative effects.

This treatment employs anticancer or cell-killing medications that help the body fight cancer by interfering with and halting the growth of cancer cells. You may be given a single medicine or a combination of medications, depending on the type of cancer you have.

These medications can be taken as pills or injected directly into a vein.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy uses X-rays or other high-energy beams to damage leukaemia cells and inhibit their growth in order to eradicate cancer cells or relieve pain or discomfort.

You will be required to lie on a table while a big machine rotates around you, directing radiation to certain spots on your body.

Radiation might be given to your entire body or to a specific part of your body where leukaemia cells have gathered.

This form of treatment could be used to help patients prepare for a stem cell transplant.

Blood Cancer Treatment - Post-Procedure

The fundamental objective of most, but not all, blood cancer treatments is to establish remission, which implies that the cancer cells in your body are no longer present.

After your treatment is completed, your healthcare team will perform additional tests, similar to those performed when you were first diagnosed, to see if any cancer cells remain in your blood.

Blood Cancer Treatment - Risk & Complications

In each situation, the risk and complications of blood cancer treatment may differ.

Different people react to different treatments in different ways.

Short-term side effects are those that occur during and soon after therapy and are usually transient.

Long-term adverse effects might endure for weeks, months, or even years, or even a lifetime.
