Dr. Sunil Gandhi

Cancer & Blood Disease

I recently saw a 70-year-old gentleman who was feeling tired and short of breath. He saw his lung doctor, who did blood work and found he was severely anemic. An iron study showed low iron. He was advised to come and see me.

Most people think anemia means low iron; this is sometimes true, but not always. He needed an outpatient blood transfusion. He was given IV iron. Further workup showed that he had abnormal protein in his blood.
