Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN)
Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are a group of rare conditions that affect the blood. In MPN, your body produces too many of a particular type of blood cell.
There are three main types of MPN:
The type of MPN you have depends on the type of blood cell your body is making too many of.
There are around 520 cases of MPN in the UK per year.
MPNs are classed by the World Health Organisation as types of blood cancer. This means your care and treatment follows national cancer guidelines and you should have access to cancer support services.
Although MPN is classed as a cancer, many people with MPN feel quite well and the condition doesn’t interfere too much with everyday life. Often, MPNs can remain stable or progress quite slowly.
