Leukemia, Lymphoma & Multiple Myeloma

Blood cancers can originate in a number of different places within the body that produce, store or transport white blood cells. Bone marrow is one of the more common starting points. Since these types of cancer cells live in the bloodstream and lymphatic system, they can easily affect other areas of the body–especially the brain and spine. Beyond spreading cancer cells to other parts of the body, blood cancers can also cause additional conditions like kidney failure, broken bones and complications associated with the nervous system.

Some of the symptoms of these types of cancer include fevers, night sweats, excessive fatigue and unexplained weight loss as well as bruising or bleeding more easily than usual.

We implement a number of highly accurate diagnostic tests that can detect blood cancers. After diagnosis, our team of experts will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that could include a wide range of options from radiation therapy to surgery.
