Early Detection, Diagnosis, and Staging TOPICS

Can myelodysplastic syndromes be found early?

Currently, no special tests are recommended for early detection of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) in the general population.

Follow-up physical exams and blood tests may help find some cases of MDS in cancer survivors previously treated with certain chemotherapy drugs.
