How your loved ones are affected
The diagnosis of cancer-related blood clots, or cancer-associated thrombosis, as doctors call it, is not a single person experience. It affects all the people around the patient, cautions Prof. Simon Noble, MD. Prof. Noble is a palliative care physician and professor at Cardiff University in Wales. (Palliative care focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness.) Prof. Noble conducts cancer-associated thrombosis research at Cardiff University and has set up a cancer-associated thrombosis service.
