Stem cell transplants are modern techniques used to replace bone marrow that has been destroyed by cancer or by the chemo and/or radiation used to treat cancer. In some cancers, such as certain leukaemias, multiple myeloma, and some lymphomas, a stem cell transplant can be an important part of treatment.
