Bruises on the skin can be a sign of blood cancer. This was reported by Express, citing the Blood Cancer UK charitable organization.
According to experts, in blood diseases bruises at first look like red spots, which change color over time, darken, and often begin to hurt. They are usually difficult to spot on darker skin. Moreover, such bruises usually appear very easily, sometimes without any external influence.
Some other symptoms of blood cancer include unexplained weight loss, bumps on the body, shortness of breath, night sweats, pallor, severe infections, fever, rash or itching, and pain in the bones and joints.
According to experts, the symptoms of blood cancer appear slowly, whereas for some they may not appear at all.
