Bone Marrow Symptoms & Treatments
Bone marrow cancer usually takes place in the large bone cavities filled with soft tissues. Stem cells present in the marrow that develop into different kinds of cells such as red and white blood cells can become malignant and there are many early symptoms to detect this affliction. Primarily, the patient should be aware that symptoms may vary from person to person and only the doctor is qualified to rule out the existence of cancerous growth and the dangers it can pose to your body. Continued loss of appetite, weight loss and weakness are warnings of any kind of malignancy. When combined with specific symptoms a proper diagnosis can be made.
Pain: If you experience intermittent pain at one or multiple bone sites that gets particularly intense at night consult an orthopaedic doctor immediately. Physical Observations: Hard lumps, swellings and stiff joints can also be considered early symptoms of bone marrow cancer. Other symptoms: Watch out for fractures from minor injuries, reduced immunity and anaemia. Click here to review numerous treatment options.
