C92.31: Myeloid sarcoma In complete remission
In your case, diseased blood cells have accumulated in one or more places in the body.
In your case, a blood cell has multiplied much too frequently and uncontrollably. The diseased blood cells have then accumulated in one or more places. This can happen in the bones, the skin or in lymph nodes, for example. You may have blood cancer at the same time.
With blood cancer, a blood cell divides uncontrollably and much too often. There are then far too many blood cells and they cannot work properly either. The diseased blood cells also crowd out the healthy blood cells. This means there are often too few healthy blood cells. A distinction is made between 3 different types of blood cell:
- Red blood cells are important for carrying oxygen in the blood.
- White blood cells are part of the body’s immune system. They fight pathogens.
- Platelets are important for clotting blood.
Blood cancer symptoms are dependent on how many diseased blood cells and how many healthy blood cells there are. You can have prolonged bleeding or develop bruises for no reason. You may then be ill much more often and more seriously. You may also feel generally weak, anaemic.
Sometimes the diseased blood cells accumulate in a place long before blood cancer develops. But there may also be another bone marrow disease. The diseased blood cells very seldom accumulate without there being bone marrow disease.
Treatment means you have no more visible diseased blood cells in the body.
