Blood consists of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma; each of it has a different function. Blood is responsible for carrying oxygen and then transporting it to the entire part of the body. Blood also collects carbon dioxide from the body and then transports it to the lungs for oxygenation. Further, blood is also responsible for transporting nutrients which is absorbed and assimilated in the small intestine; from there the blood vessels collect all the nutrients and then transport it to the rest of the body in order to get energy to do work.

When the cells keeps on dividing, breaking the cell cycle and not knowing when to stop in that case the cell gets cancerous. In most of the cases blood cancer begin in the bone marrow where the red blood cells are formed but generally it can be caused in any part such as blood, bone marrow or the lymphatic system.

What is stomach cancer and how is it treated?

stomach cancer

Stomach cancer starts when the normal cells in the body begin to grow abnormally. The normal cell cycle of the cell gets disturbed due to some mutation which leads to uncontrolled growth of cells that damage the surrounding healthy cells as well. Cancerous cells continue to grow and damages surrounding organs and hamper their function. Stomach is a muscular bag that is capable to expand like a balloon. The food we eat reaches the stomach from the esophagus and stays there for digestion. Stomach has an acidic environment to break down the food and most of the protein digestion takes place in it. Stomach cancer is also known as gastric cancer which can begin at any part of the stomach. Mostly, cancer affects the esophagus part that brings food especially at the junction where the esophagus and stomach meet which is also known as gastroesophageal junction. In some cases, stomach cancer spreads to the small intestine, liver, or colon. Further, in cases where the spread of stomach cancer is severe and it is confined to the stomach only, in such cases, surgical removal of the stomach is the only option left. In cases, where the cancer is confined to a particular spot, in those cases, other treatment options are recommended by the best oncologist in Jaipur.

Doctors usually don’t search for stomach cancer initially. The doctor goes for a routine physical examination at first and asks for previous medical history and family history if required. After that, the doctor might recommend a blood test or ultrasound to see if there is some issue in the stomach. If the reports are not normal then the doctor recommends advanced diagnostic options in order to know the exact condition of the patient. Some of the diagnostic tests include

Upper endoscopy: In an upper endoscopy, a thin tube with a camera attached to its one end is out inside the mouth through the esophagus in order to look inside the stomach.

Blood test: Blood tests are done to see if there are any signs of cancer or not.

CT scan: In Biopsy, the doctor takes a sample of tissue that is seen under a microscope by a specialist. The sample is used to see the growth of the cells and check if the cells are cancerous or not. It can be done during an endoscopy.

Upper GI test: In this, the patient is asked to drink barium in small quantities so that the doctor is able to see the stomach properly in an X-ray.


Surgery: Surgical treatment is used when the cancer is spread too much in the stomach. In such cases, the part of the stomach or the entire stomach is removed either via a normal surgery or through laparoscopic surgery.

Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is the most basic treatment method in the case of cancers. In this drugs or chemicals are used in combination to kill cancerous cells.

best hematologist

Heamato means related to blood and the study related to blood or blood-related disorders is called Hematology. Doctors or health care providers who are specialized in having all the information about blood components and blood disorders are known as Hematologists. Blood is a very important component of our body, all the major functions of the human body are related to blood on some level. Blood is solely responsible for the transportation of oxygen and nutrients in our entire body. Any kind of toxicity or deficiency of any mineral or vitamin is capable enough to cause any disease or malfunction in the body. Any part of the body that doesn’t receive an optimum supply of blood suffers from some or another problem. For instance, if there is not enough blood circulation in the head the hair follicles in the head won’t have enough nutrients that cause thinning of hair or hair fall. Therefore, it is necessary that we monitor our blood or hemoglobin level at least once in six months in order to see if any supplements or nutritional needs in the body.

Blood is mainly composed of three components viz ‘Red blood cells which are responsible for carrying oxygen to the body, ‘white blood cells that help fight against diseases or infections, and ‘platelets’ that help in transportation of nutrients and help in blood clotting. Blood disorder might affect any of these blood components that might cause several other health-related problems.


• Fast heartbeat • Fatigue • Difficulty in breathing • Muscle weakness • Trouble in concentration • Difficulty in performing mundane tasks • Sudden weight loss • Bleeding gums • Skin bruises easily

Different types of blood disorders

There are various numbers of blood disorders. Each blood component have certain types of disorders individually, some of them are:


It is one of the most common types of blood disorder. It is basically a red blood cell disorder and a lot of people suffer from it. In this, the lack of iron causes anemia; iron is responsible for hemoglobin to bind which is further responsible for oxygen transportation. The body requires iron in order to transport enough oxygen from the lungs to the entire body. Deficiency of iron can cause several other problems such as hair fall, brittle nails, pale skin, fatigue, etc. There are several types of anemia which include sickle cell anemia, autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AHA), Aplastic anemia, Iron deficiency anemia, and Pernicious anemia.

Polycythemia Vera

It is a blood disorder that is caused by a gene mutation in which the body makes too many red blood cells which makes the blood thick. When the blood becomes thick, its transportation or the blood flow becomes difficult causing blood clots which further are responsible for strokes and heart attacks.


It is a type of red blood cell disorder that is caused due to genetic mutation that prevents the production of hemoglobin in the body. Less hemoglobin means that the blood is unable to transport the oxygen to the different parts of the body which ultimately leads to organ malfunction. People suffering from thalassemia might also suffer from heart problems, breathing issues, enlarged spleen, bone deformities, etc


It is a serious type of blood cancer that impacts the lymphatic system. In this, the white blood cells grow uncontrollably. It is basically of two types, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.


It is a type of blood cancer in which the white blood cells become cancerous or malignant. The white blood cells continue to grow inside the bone marrow. Based on the severity of leukemia, it can be classified as chronic or acute.


It is a quite common blood disorder which is also known as a blood clotting disorder. It is a genetic disorder which is mostly associated with males. Hemophilia is a dangerous type of blood disorder as in this; the blood clotting does not take place in the optimum time. Generally, when we cut our finger by chance, it bleeds for a few seconds and then the blood gets clot but in people that have hemophilia, the blood doesn’t get clot timely bleeds for prolonging they require medical assistance to stop the bleeding. People with this disorder are at great risk in case of an accident or surgery.
