What Does Your Doctor's Classify Your MDS As. Cancer Or Precancer

What Does Your Doctor's Classify Your MDS As. Cancer Or Precancer

posted November 23
A MyLeukemiaTeam Member

When I first saw him due to a low platelet count on a routine physical, my count was 91 and he referred to it as pre-leukemia .
In Dec of 2022 ( almost 2 yrs later) at my 3-month blood check, the count had dropped to 39.
I started oral chemo- Inqovi- the next week. He said it had advanced to CMML.
After a bone marrow biopsy, he said we “ need more people on our team” and contacted colleagues at UVA’s cancer center.
I now see a MDS specialist who teams with BMT specialist.

Does this help?
