Leukaemia

Leukaemia at Oaks Hospital

What is leukaemia?

Leukaemia is a blood cancer that usually starts in your bone marrow, a spongy tissue found in the centre of your larger bones. All of your body’s blood cells including red cells, white cells and platelets are produced in the bone marrow.

Leukaemia leads to the over-production of abnormal white blood cells. White blood cells are part of your immune system and fight off infection, but incorrectly formed white blood cells cannot do this. Their abundance also crowds your red blood cells and platelets and means they cannot work properly either.
