Blood cancer affects your lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system. It includes your bone marrow and blood cells. Bone marrow is where blood cells develop.
Blood cancer types include:
- Leukemia – causes an abnormal amount of immature white blood cells that crowd out normal white blood cells
- Myeloma – affects your bone marrow and plasma cells (white blood cells that produce antibodies) and causes problems with excess antibody production
- Lymphoma – causes abnormal lymphocytes (type of white blood cell) to multiply and overwhelm multiple organs throughout the body
