What is blood cancer?
September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. Blood cancers affect more than 38,000 people each year and there are 137 different types. Symptoms vary but can include fatigue, back pain, night sweats, unexplained weight loss or bruising. These symptoms can often be mistaken for less serious conditions, but if they’re persistent, unexplained or unusual for you, you should book to see your GP.
