Abstract

This chapter focuses on bleeding and thrombosis issues in cancer. Different bleeding disorders associated with cancer are discussed as well as treatment. Risk factors for cancer thrombosis and treatments are discussed. Cancer is a common disease; an estimated one in four people develop some form of cancer in a lifetime. Both excessive bleeding and thrombosis may be seen in cancer patients. These may be due to the direct effect of the malignant cell or to the byproducts of the cancer having an effect on the hemostatic system.
