Blood Cancer : Causes & Symptoms

The cause is usually different from other types of cancer. Experts say that Blood Malignancies arise due to different causes, some of them are suspected and some are yet to be. It is nearly impossible to prove what caused a blood cancer in any individual, because most blood cancers have multiple possible causes.

Discussions will be carried out on the suspecting and suspected causes of blood cancer that include: Exposure to radiation and chemicals, Genetic predisposition, drugs, Human T-cell Leukemia Virus (HTLV), Electromagnetic energy, Genetic factors (chromosomal abnormalities, maternal fetal transmission (rare).

 

Blood cancer can produce a variety of symptoms, or none at all. In some cases, blood cancer can be life threatening, especially if severe infections or uncontrollable bleeding occur. Many blood cancers are more common among older adults. Some tend to run in families. Certain infections also appear to increase the risk of some blood cancers, as does a weakened immune system. Exposure to certain chemicals or radiation & chemotherapy can also be a big cause for blood malignancies.
