Blood and Lymphoma Cancer Awareness Month 2024

Each year in Hong Kong, nearly 3,000 individuals are diagnosed with haematological malignancies (collectively, “blood cancer”). These include diseases such as acute and chronic leukemia, Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, myeloma, myeloproliferative disease, and myelodysplastic syndrome, etc.

We will share relevant information and programmes to raise public awareness of blood cancer. By increasing understanding, we can encourage more people to pay attention to and show care for those around us who are affected by hematological cancers. Let's make a difference and offer support to them!

What is it about?

It is estimated that there are about 1,000 new cases of blood cancer in Hong Kong every year. The reason why blood cancer is so frightening is that it does not have any signs or symptoms. Unlike other cancers that can be removed in surgery, and it comes fiercely once it emerges regardless in early or late stage of development. However, blood cancer is still a curable. The public will learn more about the causes, diagnosis and treatment of leukemia in this seminar.
