September marks Blood Cancer Awareness Month. In recognition of this, we are proud to present some of our research on blood cancer that has published within the open access oncology journal portfolio.

Blood cancer encompasses many different hematological disorders that affect the blood, bone marrow and/or lymphatic system. The different types of blood cancer can be grouped into the following categories: leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. It is estimated that in the US, a person is diagnosed with blood cancer every three minutes. Leukemia is a global problem and is currently ranked the 13th most common cancer worldwide.

As a global health issue, continued research on blood cancer is of paramount significance with particular reference to risk assessment and prognostics, diagnostics, genetics, clinical trials and therapeutics. The articles in this collection have been curated by our oncology journal Editors and include some of the latest research in the field in each of these categories.

Once you have read the research, why not test your knowledge on the morphology of blood cancer by taking our Blood Cancer Awareness Quiz.
