Treatment & Procedures

Blood Cancer

Cancer that affects the bone marrow where blood cells are produced or other parts of the immune system like lymph nodes are called blood cancer. Over 50,000 people in India are diagnosed with leukaemia (blood cancer) and about 3.7% of fresh cases are reported every year.

 

Types of Blood Cancers

The types of blood cancer, include:

Cancer Care / Oncology
  • Lymphoma: Also called cancer of the lymphatic system, this type of blood cancer usually affects the lymphocytes, which are a type of white blood cells that are a part of the immune system. Types of lymphoma include: 
  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Diffuse large B cell lymphoma
  • Burkitt lymphoma
  • Follicular lymphoma
  • Waldenström macroglobulinaemia
  • Myeloma: This type of blood cancer usually affects the plasma cells, which are a type of white blood cells that is responsible to produce antibodies. 
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes: This is a precancerous condition caused as the cells produced in the bone marrow are faulty and may progress to blood cancer over a period of time.
  • Myeloproliferative neoplasms: This is a rare type of blood cancer where our body produces too many of a particular type of blood cell. Types of Myeloproliferative neoplasms include: 
    • Polycythaemia vera
    • Essential thrombocythemia
    • Myelofibrosis
    • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

Blood Cancer Symptoms

Symptoms of blood cancer vary depending on the different type of blood cancer and include:

  • Breathlessness 
  • Fever
  • Lumps 
  • Night sweats
  • Persistent Infections 
  • A pale complexion that is not normal
  • Rashes or itchy skin 
  • Joints pain 
  • Tiredness even while resting
  • Unexplained bleeding or bruises
  • Weight loss without even trying

If you have any of the above symptoms or if you have blood cancer, then consult with the best oncologist at the Fortune Healthcare Hospital & Diagnostics Centre.

Diagnosis of Blood Cancer

Physical Exam: Physical signs like signs of anaemia, swelling of lymph nodes, enlargement of spleen, liver, etc are looked for in a physical examination.

Blood cancer is diagnosed using certain tests including: 

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC): This is a common blood test used to diagnose blood cancer. The type of blood cells measured using this test includes:
    • White blood cell count (WBC count): Also known as leukocyte count, WBC count measures the total number of WBCs in the blood sample. WBC protects our body from cancer cells, infection, and other foreign bodies.
    • White blood cell differential: This test measures the number of different types of white blood cells including neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils.
    • Red blood cell count (RBC count): Also called an erythrocyte count, an RBC count measures the number of RBCs in the blood sample using various methods like haematocrit and haemoglobin. 
    • Platelet count: The test measures the number of platelets, which is important for the process of forming blood clots, in a blood sample. 
  • Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy
  • Lymph node biopsy in cases of lymphoma
  • PET-CT
  • Some specialized tests are done for typing of blood cancers
    • Flowcytometry or Immunohistochemistry
    • Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH)
    • Karyotyping
    • Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is the latest technique of diagnosing and risk stratification of blood cancers.

Treatment of Blood Cancer 

Blood cancer can be treated using different treatments including:

  • Active Surveillance or Watchful Waiting: Sometimes, for individuals with blood cancer, treatment may not be beneficial at that point, or they may not need it. In such cases, they are monitored using regular blood tests and follow-up visits. Watchful waiting may be the safest way to avoid the side effects of cancer treatment.     
  • Chemotherapy: Medications or drugs are given orally or intravenously to kill cancer cells. The therapy is done in cycles with a long gap in between these cycles. 
  • Stem Cell Transplant: The abnormal stem cells are replaced with healthy cells, intravenously. The types of stem cell transplant include:
    • Autograft or autologous stem cell transplant: The patient’s healthy stem cells are collected, stored, and then transplanted back, later.
    • Allograft or allogeneic stem cell transplant: A donor’s healthy stem cells are used for the transplant.
  • Immunotherapy: The individual’s immune system is strengthened by drugs or medications to fight against cancer cells.
  • Targeted Therapies: Also called biological therapies, genetic changes in the cancer cells are targeted and destroyed. 
  • Radiotherapy: High-energy rays, like x-rays, are used to destroy cancer cells. They are especially used to treat Hodgkin lymphoma or non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Machines are used to focus high-energy rays on the area where the cancer cells are.
  • Surgery: Surgery is very rare and only a few people undergo surgery, especially those with lymphoma who need to have their spleen removed.

Fortune Healthcare Hospital & Diagnostics Centre  is the best blood cancer treatment  in Bngladesh that brings the expertise of several specialists, including surgeons, pathologists, oncologists, radiation therapists, and nurses, to bear in customizing treatment for each patient so that you can get the care you need right away.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can blood cancer be cured permanently?

Blood cancer is curable with the appropriate treatment and medication, at the right time. The curability rate also depends on the type of blood cancer, stage of cancer in case of lymphoma and age of the person. According to NIH (National Institute of Health), about two-thirds of people with leukaemia can live longer than 5 years while people with Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, have a high-curability rate of 85% and 70% respectively. 

  1. How long can you live with blood cancer?

The survival rates for people with blood cancer have significantly improved and are reported to live longer than 5 years. 

  1. Which type of blood cancer is most dangerous?

No response to initial treatment or recurrent relapse of cancer after treatment indicates that cancer is dangerous.

  1. How can one predict the chance of survival in blood cancers?

The chance of survival in the case of blood cancers is predicted on the basis of prognostication scores. Various factors that are included in the prognostication of blood cancers include:

  1. Age
  2. Blood parameters
  3. CT scan/ PET scan findings
  4. Genetic mutations
  1. How are Blood cancers different from Solid-organ cancer?

Blood is a liquid medium present throughout the body and not confined to a defined area,  which makes blood cancers and their treatment very different from Solid-organ cancers. There is a limited role of surgery and radiation therapy in the treatment of blood cancers, as they are chemo-sensitive. Chemotherapy treatment for blood cancers is much more intense in comparison to solid cancers and hence, their side effects. Also, the staging of blood cancers is very different from solid cancers and the concept of metastasis is not applicable for blood cancers. In the case of blood cancers, prognostic risk stratification is important. Bone marrow transplant had a limited role in solid cancers but remains the curative treatment for blood cancers.

This difference has actually led to the development of a completely different speciality for the treatment of blood cancers i.e. Hemato-oncology all over the world. For blood cancer treatment, consult Fortune Healthcare Hospital & Diagnostic Centre, the best hospital for blood cancer treatment in Bangladesh. They have cancer experts with wide experience in the diagnosis and treatment of virtually every kind of cancer.

Colposcopy clinic 

Colposcopy is a diagnostic procedure in which a colposcope (a dissecting microscope with various magnification lenses) is used to provide an illuminated magnified view of the cervix, vagina, vulva or anus to identify precancerous and cancerous lesions so that they may be treated early.

Overview:

  • Colposcopy is a diagnostic procedure in which a colposcope (a dissecting microscope with various magnification lenses) is used to provide an illuminated magnified view of the cervix, vagina, vulva or anus to identify precancerous and cancerous lesions so that they may be treated early. 
Cancer Care / Oncology

Pre Procedure:

  • Before the procedure, you should not apply anything in the vagina, like creams, douches etc.
  • Please carry a sanitary napkin as you may experience spotting or slight bleeding, post-procedure.
  • Please wear comfortable loose clothing.
  • You must inform your doctor if you are on blood thinners as these can increase bleeding if you have a biopsy during the colposcopy.
  • If you know or think you could be pregnant, inform your doctor.

During Procedure: 

  • You are settled comfortably in an area where your privacy is respected throughout the procedure.
  • Colposcopy is performed similar to a routine pelvic examination, while you lie on an examination table.
  • Anaesthesia is not usually administered before the biopsy because the procedure causes only mild discomfort or cramping.

During Colposcopy, the doctor applies various chemical agents on the cervix and vaginal area. Depending on the changes in the colour of the cells, a biopsy may be taken from the abnormal areas. You may experience some burning or tingling sensation for a few seconds when the chemicals are applied.

  • The tissue sample is then sent to a laboratory for examination.
  • In case you also have a biopsy of your cervix, you may have slight vaginal bleeding after the colposcopy.

Post Procedure:

  • In the majority of the cases, you will be able to return to normal daily activities immediately after a colposcopy. You may have mild pain, spotting or cramping, which usually goes away within 1 or 2 hours or in certain cases may last for 2 days, in which case you may have to use a sanitary napkin to avoid staining.
  • There are no dietary restrictions.
  • Do not use any vaginal creams, douches, tampons etc and abstain from sex for 48 hours after the procedure.
  • You must immediately come back to us if you have any of the following signs and symptoms:
  1. Heavy vaginal bleeding for more than 7 days.
  2. Foul-smelling vaginal discharge, but remember that brown/black, coffee ground discharge is normal for the first few days after the procedure.
  3. Pelvic pains or cramps that do not improve with painkillers.
  4. Temperature is greater than 100.4 degrees F or 38 degrees C.
  • Review Biopsy report in 3-4 days.

FAQ’s

What are some of the warning signs and symptoms of cancer?

  1. A change in bowel or bladder habits
  2.  A sore that doesn’t heal
  3.  Unusual bleeding or discharge from any opening in the body
  4.  Unexplained weight loss and loss of appetite
  5.  Difficulty in swallowing or chronic indigestion
  6.  An obvious change in a wart or mole
  7.  A nagging cough or persistent hoarseness of voice

How does Cancer spread?

Cancer often spreads through the vessels and channels of the body. In the case of certain cancers like soft tissue sarcomas, they spread through the blood vessels. The lymph nodes are also a medium of spreading for certain cancer types such as breast cancer. Cancer can also spread to areas contingent to the organ or tissue of origin.

How many different types of cancer are there?

There are more than 100 types of cancer. The most common types of cancer are cancers of the brain, vocal cord cancer or lung cancer due to smoking, and liver or stomach cancer. Women also commonly suffer from breast or cervix cancer.

Why are older people more prone to cancer?

Old people are more susceptible to cancer for the simple reason that a lifetime of accumulated unhealthy lifestyle choices (tobacco, cigarettes, excessive alcohol) finally starts presenting in the form of cancer. There are certain people for whom there may be genetic susceptibility and cancer does not always wait until old age to develop.

Are all forms of cancer curable?

Cancers, if detected in the early stage are usually curable. However certain types like leukemia and other cancers have a lower curability rate. Also, certain brain tumours have a high growth rate which means the diagnosis usually comes too late for the patient to launch an effective treatment for the disease.

What are urgent symptoms of cancer?

There are 7 danger signals of cancer:
  1. Soreness in the mouth or ulcers that do not heal.
  2. Abnormal painless swelling in the lymph areas, such as the neck or armpit.
  3. Sudden change in the appearance of any moles and bleeding from that area.
  4. Chronic hoarseness of the voice, particularly in smokers.
  5. A persistent cough that does not go away even after treatment.
  6. Abnormal bleeding such as post-menopausal bleeding in women as well as bleeding from the rectum while passing stool.
  7. Fatigue and loss of weight.

What is metastasis?

Metastasis is basically the medical term for the spread of cancer. Once again, cancer spreads through blood vessels, lymph channels, or other body fluids. It also spreads to adjacent tissues.

What lifestyle choices could lead to cancer?

A modern sedentary lifestyle coupled with smoking and weight gain as well as bad food habits such as consuming aerated drinks and saturated fats can all trigger the development of cancer. A purely non-vegetarian diet without much vegetables can also be a trigger for cancer.

Are there any foods that help in reducing the risk of cancer?

The most important thing that needs to be stressed about diet is the need for balance. Other than that, it is generally advised to avoid processed and stored foods and to eat more vegetables.

What process does a doctor use to scan for tumours?

The first step for a doctor is to conduct a basic physical check for swellings or lumps. This includes a breast examination for women and a tutorial on how to self-examine breasts. Also a basic mammogram and pap smear can be done. An oral cavity examination is often done for men.

CT Scan is not always prescribed because it exposes the individual to radiation. It is usually recommended after something suspicious turns up during a physical examination.

lifestyle choices and awareness of cancer, as well as an early stage diagnosis are very important towards preventing or beating this disease.
