Leukemia

Posted by Sandi | 6:07 PM

Cancer is still regarded as the "scourge" that threaten human lives. The disease is considered very frightening, because if a person already convicted has cancer, the disease is usually already at an advanced stage. One of the cancer disease is commonly called blood cancer or leukemia.

All cancer starts from cells that form blood and other tissues. Normally cells grow and divide to form new cells when the body needs them. When cells grow old, they die and new cells take their place too.
 
However, sometimes this orderly process goes wrong. New cells form when the body does not need them and old cells do not die when they should die. Well, leukemia is a cancer that starts in blood cells.


Therefore, there is nothing wrong if we recognize the symptoms of leukemia since the beginning so he could take action as soon as possible (it could not hurt to try).Common symptoms of leukemia are:
  1. Fever or night sweats.
  2. Infection often occurs many times.
  3. Weak or tired.
  4. Headaches.
  5. Bleeding and easy bruising, bleeding gums for example, signs purplefish on skin, or red dots are small under the skin.
  6. Pain in bones or joints.
  7. Swelling or discomfort in the stomach as a result of the enlargement of the spleen.
  8. The magnitude-node lymph nodes, especially on the neck or armpits.
  9. Weight loss
The symptoms above are not definitive signs of leukemia. An infection or other problems can also cause these symptoms. However, if you have these symptoms, you should immediately consult a doctor because the doctor can diagnose and initiating further action.
Nothing wrong if we do early detection before its too late. Hopefully this information can be useful for us all. (Source: Kata Hati : S. Maharani)
