What Is Blood Cancer?
Blood Cancer is a widely prevalent type of cancer. Most of the functions and productions of blood cells are affected by blood cancer. It is seen that most of the cancers begin from the place where blood is produced i.e. bone marrow. In this case, the process of development of normal blood cells is disrupted by the growth of an abnormal type of cell. These cancerous blood cells stop your blood from performing their primary functions like preventing blood loss, fighting against infections, etc.
