Cancer that starts in the bone marrow is called bone marrow cancer or blood cancer. Treatment for bone marrow cancer is individualized and based on the specific type and stage of cancer you have, as well as any other health considerations. It may include chemotherapy, biological therapy, targeted therapy drugs, radiation therapy, and stem-cell transplants.
Each of these treatments carries its own risks and can sometimes cause life-threatening complications, such as severe infection or kidney failure.
The outlook for people with bone marrow cancer varies significantly among individuals. If a person receives a diagnosis before the cancer spreads, they are more likely to respond well to treatment and remain free of cancer for years after going into remission.
In other people, bone marrow cancer is aggressive, and treatment may not be as effective for these people.
The cost of bone marrow cancer treatment in India starts from USD 3,990.
