Leukemia(Blood Cancer ) is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood and is the most common type of childhood cancer. The bone marrow is the soft, spongy center of the bones and produces the three types of blood cells: white blood cells that fight infection, red blood cells that carry oxygen and platelets that help with blood clotting and bleeding .

The bone marrow is the soft, spongy center of the bones and produces the three types of blood cells: white blood cells that fight infection, red blood cells that carry oxygen and platelets that help with blood clotting and bleeding . Leukemia(Blood Cancer ) begin in the bone marrow from where blood is produced. An uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell interrupts the development process of a normal blood cell. The cancerous cells or abnormal blood cells prevent the blood from performing functions such as preventing serious bleeding or fighting off with infections.

Infection and disease fighting antibodies in the body are produced by plasma cells that are basically white blood cells. Leukemia : This type of blood cancer is due to rapid production of abnormal white blood cells. Leukemia can be found in bone marrow and in blood. These abnormal cells are no more able to fight off infection and also impair the bone marrow’s ability to produce platelets and red blood cells. Lymphoma : Lymphatic system that produces immune cells and also removes excess fluids from the body gets affected by lymphoma blood cancer. Lymphocytes are considered as a type of white blood cell that helps in fighting off infection

Growth of tumors in the bone marrow or damage to the bone can also be determined with the help of a physical examination biopsy : The presence of cancer cells is determined by taking a sample of a bone marrow while performing a biopsy. Cytogenetics : The change in the genetic material is determined by this test. Urine Test : The change in the genetic material is determined by this test.

Instead, the term leukemia refers to a number of related cancers that start in the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow. There are both acute and chronic forms of leukemia, each with many subtypes that vary in their response to treatment. In addition, children with leukemia have special needs that are best met by care in pediatric cancer centers.

  • 7. Stem cell transplantation :Younger patients that are at high risk for dying from CLL might consider hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Autologous stem cell transplantation, a lower-risk form of treatment using the patient's own blood cells, is not curative. Myeloablative (bone marrow killing) forms of allogeneic stem cell transplantation, a high-risk treatment using blood cells from a healthy donor, may be curative for some patients, but most patients cannot tolerate the treatment. Biological Therapy : Biological therapy, also referred to as immunotherapy, involves the treatment with those substances that affect the ability of an immune system to kill cancer cells. Monoclonal antibodies and interferon are the two types of biological therapy. The purpose of monoclonal antibodies is to stick to cancer cells in order to draw the attention of the immune system to these cancer cells. Radiotherapy : Radiotherapy, also known as radiation therapy, makes use of energy rays such as X-rays for stopping the growth and multiplication of the cancer cells. This energy is directed at any particular part of the body such as the spleen or also to the entire body. www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india
