As you work with your Healthcare Professional to understand and assess your condition, it’s important to be aware of how you feel and how myelofibrosis (MF) affects your daily life. Your symptoms, your blood counts, even your feelings can help you identify your MF State of Mine—or where you are on your journey with MF.
Regularly evaluating your myelofibrosis—and understanding your MF State of Mine—may help you recognize when something isn’t right. This can empower you to talk to your Healthcare Professional about managing your condition.
Myelofibrosis is a rare, chronic blood cancer. It can also "progress," or get worse over time. For example, new symptoms may appear or existing symptoms may get worse.
Myelofibrosis is part of a group of diseases called "myeloproliferative neoplasms," or MPNs. Healthcare Professionals sometimes call myelofibrosis a bone marrow cancer or blood cancer. Bone marrow is where blood cells are made. People with MF have a defect in their bone marrow that results in an abnormal production of blood cells, causing scar tissue to form.
MF can result from a progression of other bone marrow diseases or it can occur on its own. This is known as primary myelofibrosis.
About 16,000 to 18,500 people in the United States have been diagnosed with MF.
To try to help control the signs and symptoms of MF, Healthcare Professionals use therapies such as blood transfusions, chemotherapy, radiation, removal of the spleen, and stem cell transplantation.
