Blood cancers or hematologic cancer refers to any cancer that affects blood, bone marrow and/or lymph nodes.
Leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma are all cancers of the blood and the blood-forming organs. In leukemia, the cancer cells circulate in the blood and bone marrow. In myeloma, the cancer cells amass in the bone marrow and form a tumor. In lymphoma, the cells tend to clump together to form tumors in the lymphatic tissues.
