Blood and Bone Marrow Cancers

In adults, all blood cells are made in the bone marrow, so cancers of the blood are also cancers of the bone marrow.  There are several different types of blood and bone marrow cancer; some are more serious than others.  In Palmerston North, we can treat all adults with blood and bone marrow cancers but children are referred to Wellington Hospital.
 
In Palmerston North we are involved in several international clinical trials examining the best treatment for different types of blood and bone marrow cancers; any patient who is suitable for a trial will be told about it by the specialist and given an opportunity to consider whether to take part. 
 

More information about the most common blood and bone marrow cancers is available.
