What is Blood Cancer?
Blood is the fluid connective tissue of the body and it is responsible for various functions such as providing oxygen and nutrients to the cells, transporting waste materials away from the body, fending off infections and regulating the body temperature. Blood cancers like lymphoma, leukaemia, and myeloma wreak havoc on the human body by disrupting these vital functions.

- Extreme fatigue
- Sudden and unexplained weight loss
- Lumps in the neck, armpits or groin
- Inability to clot blood properly
