D47.1: Chronic myeloproliferative disease

Your bone marrow is producing too many, too few or defective blood cells.

The bone marrow is inside the bone. The blood cells are formed in the bone marrow of some of the bones. There are 3 different types of blood cell: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. 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.

Your bone marrow is not working properly. It is not producing the right amount of different blood cells. It is also possible that defective blood vessels are being formed. The symptoms can vary greatly. You can feel weak or get sick more often. It is also possible that you will bleed for longer than normal or have blood clots in your body. You may also have no symptoms at all.
