Blood cancer treatment and side effects
Treatments for blood cancer usually involve one of – or a combination of – chemotherapy or biological therapies (drugs which act on abnormal processes going on in cells). In some cases people may have radiotherapy, other drugs or stem cell transplants. Other people may never need treatment.
Most treatments have some side effects but these differ from person to person and your healthcare team will be able to help you to manage them.
