SLG Cancer Center is fully equipped to diagnose and treat blood cancers, and manage post-treatment complications, if any.

What is
Blood Cancer?

Blood cancer often begins in the bone marrow, which contains stem cells that form into red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Cancer results from uncontrolled growth of immature nonfunctional cells that prevents normal blood cells from carrying out their normal functions, like fighting infections or clotting.
We at SLG Cancer Center are well equipped to get a precise diagnosis to ensure best treatment.


While each type of blood cancer is different, a few symptoms are common to all. Some common blood cancer symptoms include:


Frequent infections

Loss of appetite or nausea

Night sweats

Progressive weakness and fatigue

Shortness of breath

Swollen, lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin 

As with any cancer, blood cancer treatment needs to be tailored to each patient. At SLG Cancer Center, our hematologists, in collaboration with experts from almost every speciality, draw an individualized treatment plan in accordance with the specific type of blood cancer, its stage, and other factors pertaining to the patient’s overall health. We at SLG follow evidence based treatment protocols
Depending upon the type of blood cancer, our doctors recommend one or more of the following treatments:

Chemotherapy involves the periodic administration of anti-cancer drugs, often over the course of several months. It is used to both treat cancer and relieve cancer symptoms, such as shrinking tumors that cause pain. Depending on the type and stage of the blood cancer, chemotherapy is delivered to the patient via mouth or injection.
Immunotherapy also known as biotherapy, uses the body’s own immune system to help fight diseases such as blood cancer. It works directly with the body’s immune system to stop or slow down the growth of cancer cells or it can indirectly boost your immune system to attack and kill cancer cells.
Stem cell transplant or bone marrow transplant is a medical procedure in which a patient’s destroyed or damaged bone marrow cells or stem cells are replaced with healthy blood-forming bone marrow cells from a donor. These stem cells grow into all types of blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells (or immune cells), and platelets.
