In adults, all blood cells are made in the bone marrow, so cancers of the blood are also cancers of the bone marrow.
Blood and Bone Marrow Cancers
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.
