Leukaemia
Leukaemia is a cancer of cells in the bone marrow which spill out into the bloodstream. There are several types of leukaemias. Most types of leukaemia arise from cells which normally develop into white blood cells but there are leukaemias related to red cells and platelets. The meaning of the word leukaemia is ‘white blood’ and the word derives from Greek. If one is diagnosed with leukaemia, it is important to know exactly what type of leukaemia it is in order to treat it correctly.

The key types of leukaemia:
• Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL)
• Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL)
• Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML)
• Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (CML

Myeloma
Myeloma, also known as multiple myeloma, is a type of bone marrow cancer. Multiple myeloma affects plasma cells inside the bone marrow.Myeloma does not usually take the form of a lump or tumour. Instead, myeloma cells divide and expand within the bone marrow, damaging bones and affecting the production of healthy blood cells. Myeloma often affects many parts of the body, which is why it is called multiple myeloma. Commonly affected areas include spine, skull, pelvis and ribs.

Lymphoma
Lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system. Hodgkin lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma are two main types of lymphomas that one could be diagnosed with. However, cancers that spread to the lymph nodes from other parts of the body are not lymphomas. There are different subtypes within each type.
