Web chat with Dr Shirley D’Sa, Consultant Haematologist 

07/01/2016 00:00 
Waldenström’s macroglobulinaemia (also known as lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma) is a rare form of bone marrow cancer, which is associated in most cases with the presence of an excessive amount of protein in the blood.
 

Waldenström’s macroglobulinaemia often develops over a long period of time and many people have no symptoms at all. This means that sometimes the condition is found by chance while having investigations for another condition or on a routine blood test.

Our expert is consultant haematologist Dr Shirley D’Sa who specialises in treating patients with Waldenström’s macroglobulinaemia and is on the advisory board for WMUK.

The conversation will focus on how the condition differs from other lymphomas, how it needs special consideration when being treated and how there have been rapid advances in the biology and treatment. Questions related to all aspects of Waldenström's macroglobulinemia and related conditions are welcome.

If you have a question you would like to put to Dr D'Sa, feel free to send them to webmaster@uclh.nhs.uk - alternatively join us on the 14th January 2016.
