Too numerous to list: "blood cancer" is a so-so term for leukemia. Anything from a vague feeling of tiredness building over months from a mild anemia, to a catastrophic illness with fatal hemorrhage from many places or catastrophic stroke, or nothing at all. If you have any concerns about having leukemia or any other serious illness, get with your physician -- we can almost always spot serious disease.

Be concise, specific: There is a huge textbook regarding blood cancers- there are so many types of blood cancer. We can't give you the answer as your question is too broad. Rephrase your question, be concise and specific
