- Iron deficiency anaemia
- Sickle cell disease
- Multiple myeloma

Each condition treated under this speciality has a different set of symptoms. However, there are some common symptoms associated with blood cancer that may prompt a patient to visit a haematology oncologist. These include:

- Repeated cases of infectious illnesses
- Itchy patches or rashes on the skin

Your care plan for blood cancer treatment will be personalised based on the type of cancer, its stage, extremity of symptoms and your general health. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are some common alternatives used to treat blood cancers.

“I have had a pleasant experience at the CK Birla Hospital. I always visit this hospital when I have any health needs. When my daughter-in-law was expecting, I asked her to go to this hospital only. She received exemplary care at the fetal medicine centre and my grandson was delivered in good health. Very very good hospital”. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
Early signs of blood cancer include coughing, chest pain, fever, chills, frequent infections, itchy skin, rashes, loss of appetite, persistent weakness and fatigue.
Leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), amyloidosis and aplastic anaemia are some types of blood cancer.
Blood cancers can be effectively treated and managed but cannot be completely cured.
