Polycythemia vera is characterized amongst the group of blood cancers called as myeloproliferative neoplasms. It is a slowly -growing blood cancer where bone marrow makes too many red blood cells. Excess production of red blood cells make the blood thicker. Blood clot formation lead to heart stroke.

Primary Polycythemia Vera
In this type, there is mutation of gene JAK 2 which releases a protein, responsible for the production of red blood cells.
