In brief: See below...
Myelodysplastic syndromes (mds) represent a group of bone marrow cancers similar to leukemias in many respects but usually with a less aggressive evolution.
Like many other types of cancer, treatment includes chemotherapy and sometimes bone marrow transplantation; however, if the mds is low grade sometimes treatment is not necessary, at least not initially (watchful waiting).
