The term "myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)" refers to a group of conditions, which are sometimes called bone marrow failure disorders, that can lead to abnormalities in the blood. MDS occurs when bone marrow produces fewer healthy blood cells that work properly.
MDS is a rare type of blood cancer.
MDS is not contagious. In very rare cases (up to 10%), MDS can be linked to inherited conditions (meaning they run in your family). Talk to your healthcare provider about inheritable disorders related to MDS.
