Specializes in Hematology and Oncology

Bone marrow cancer would refer to leukemias, multiple myeloma and some lymphomas. These are cancers of the cells that typically reside in the normal bone marrow. These are different than 'bone cancers' which refer to cancers that start in the solid part of the bone--sarcomas. And these are different than cancers that spread to bone which is also common.
