Disease Information & Support


The Word:


If you have a diagnosis of a blood cancer (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes, myeloproliferative neoplasms), knowing about molecular testing is important. Molecular tests may provide precise information about your cancer and how it may respond to a specific treatment. With this information, you and your doctor can discuss treatment options tailored to your cancer.
