Hemophilia is a bleeding condition. People who suffer from this disorder can bleed for longer periods after they get a cut or have surgery.
This condition occurs when someone’s clotting factor is low, a protein in the blood that stops bleeding. According to the World Federation of Hemophilia, this condition is passed on from parents through genes that carry messages about how the body’s cells develop through adulthood. This gene is what determines, for example, hair and eye color.
Some of the symptoms of this condition include large bruises, and bleeding inside muscles and joints for a long period of time after getting a cut, getting a tooth pulled or having surgery. Early and adequate treatment will help reduce patients’ pain and the damage to their joints, muscles and organs. This will also help them lead a healthy life.
