Types of Cancer

Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow, the spongy tissue inside bones where blood cells are produced.

It’s characterized by rapid production of abnormal white blood cells, which accumulate in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of other blood cells, including red blood cells and platelets.

Common Symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent infections
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Easy bruising/bleeding
