Pay attention to permanent discomforts in your body as they could be something important.

A timely consultation and early diagnostic are the best ways of treating the blood diseases; apropos of the World Month of these diseases (among which is the lymphoma, myeloma and leukemia), the Colombian Foundation of Leukemia and Lymphoma makes sensitization and acknowledgement of the potential symptoms.

Studies made by the Foundation indicate that frequent infections, as well as weight loss, fatigue sensation and unusual tiredness, as well as bone and joint pain, intermittent fever without a clear cause and ganglia inflammation are alarm signals, in front of which you should go to the doctor. “Knowing the symptoms favors early detection and therefore, the effective control of the disease”, says Yolima Mendez, President of the Colombian Foundation of Leukemia and Lymphoma.

Each year in Colombia, around 6,000 cases of blood cancer in adults occur.
