Symptoms of Myelodysplastic syndromes

Symptoms of Myelodysplastic syndromes: Introduction

The symptoms of myelodysplastic syndromes result from the production of abnormal blood cells. When the body doesn't have enough normal blood cells, such processes as oxygen delivery to cells, fighting infections, and the clotting of blood are seriously affected. This process results in symptoms that can vary between individuals and the type of blood cells that are affected.

Early in the disease process, there may be no symptoms, or symptoms, such as fatigue and bruising, may be so mild that they are hardly noticed. As the specific type of myelodysplastic syndrome progresses, symptoms can become more perceptible and may include easy bruising or bleeding, shortness of breath, fever, frequent infections, and fatigue. A rash-like condition, petechiae, may also occur. Petechiae are tiny red spots that are caused by bleeding under the skin.

These symptoms can become serious, even life-threatening complications, such as uncontrolled hemorrhage, anemia, and serious recurrent infections. People with myelodysplastic syndromes also have an increased risk of developing leukemia, a kind of cancer that affects the blood cells....more about Myelodysplastic syndromes »
