What are Haematological Cancers?

Haematological cancers arise from abnormal blood or bone marrow cells. Bone marrow is the spongy material that is inside a lot of our bones and is responsible for producing stem cells (cells at a very early stage of development). All of the blood cells in the body develop from stem cells. In bone marrow, they develop into 3 different forms of blood cells:

  • Red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body
  • White blood cells, responsible for fighting infection
  • Platelets, which help blood to clot and control bleeding

Radiotherapy

You may be given radiotherapy to reduce the risk of cancer coming back.

Radiotherapy uses high-energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells. Normal cells can also be damaged by radiotherapy, which may cause side effects. But careful planning and newer ways of giving radiotherapy have reduced the risk of damage to healthy tissue and nearby organs. Cancer cells cannot repair themselves after radiotherapy, but normal cells usually can.
