Myeloproliferative Neoplasm

Your dedicated partner for long-term blood cancer care.

Receiving a diagnosis for a rare type of cancer like myeloproliferative neoplasm can be overwhelming. Our dedicated hematologists and oncologists are blood cancer experts who are fully dedicated to helping you understand your condition and find the best treatment possible. You’ll be surrounded by an entire care team offering advanced medical treatments, emotional support and symptom management.

What are Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs)?

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) can occur when abnormal stem cells in your bone marrow cause your body to overproduce red blood cells, white blood cells and/or platelets. More than 250,000 people in the U.S. are living with myeloproliferative neoplasm, diagnosed as essential thrombocythemia (ET), myelofibrosis (MF), polycythemia vera (PV) or chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).

You are unique, which is why the hematology experts at Novant Health Cancer Institute will work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. Because treatment options may change over time as your condition progresses, you’ll be encouraged to visit your care team regularly. Ongoing monitoring and follow-up are important so we can make sure your treatment is effective and we can identify and address any potential complications.
