Is blood cancer curable?
The causes of blood cancerThere are specific causes as to why you have blood cancer. They are: • Weak immune system. • Specific infection • Aging • Family history.
The cure to your blood cancerThe answer to your question is yes; you can cure blood cancer. If you get the right treatment with the right medication, you can completely go cancer-free. Several years of scientific advancement has now made the survival rate relatively high. As per the reports, the curability rate is as high as 70 to 80 percent for Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin cancer types. However, the curability rate also depends on the patient’s age, condition, medical condition, and how aggressively the cancer is spreading. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is common in kids. Whereas, acute lymphoblastic leukemia in adults. Both diseases have a high curability rate. But the science has still to work on the curability rate of myelogenous leukemia in kids.
Treatment option for blood cancerThe doctors aim to eradicate or inactivate the functioning of cancer cells to allow the growth of normal blood cells. So to achieve the result, they use chemotherapy. But chemotherapy is an intensive treatment and requires the insertion of intravenous antibiotics in the vein. Since the treatment is intensive, it has some side effects and involves platelet or blood transfusion. However, if the doctor feels like the patient is weak to go through the curative treatment, he may suggest gentle treatment.
- Stem cell transplant: In this treatment, the cure for your blood cancer may not be permanent because the relapse rate is high. Relapse means the problem may return after some time. This treatment is usually carried out by doctors after chemotherapy when your cancer is in control.
- Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy helps kill cancer cells for relieving the pain and discomfort the patient goes through for so long. This treatment process often comes before the stem transplant process of the cure.
ConclusionSo to sum it up, if you have cancer, you should not worry. Science has now answered your problem. And with the best treatment and care, you will soon come back to your everyday life. Just remember to stay positive and hopeful throughout your treatment. No matter which type of cancer you are going through, you can now find its treatment easily.
Your blood performs the essential function of the body by supplying oxygen to every organ. It contains an equal mix of red blood cells and white blood cells. But when you have blood cancer, your body produces too many white blood cells, which stocks up healthy cells.
