Hematologic Oncology

A hematologic-oncology is the study that involves in the diagnosis, treatment and/or prevention of blood diseases and cancers such as iron-deficiency anemia, hemophilia, sickle-cell disease, leukemia and lymphoma. This physician is trained in hematology — the study of blood — and oncology — the study of cancer. Hematologist-oncologists do not usually treat operable cancers such as prostate cancer, but specialize in treating blood cancers, such as Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins lymphomas, leukemias and multiple myelomas. A hematologist-oncologist may also specialize in the management of solid tumors.

Hematologist-oncologists often work closely with colleagues from other departments including: radiation-oncology, surgery, radiology and pathology. Other associated specialties include infectious disease, pain medicine and psychology.

Haematologists also conduct studies in oncology and work with oncologists, people who may specialize only in that field instead of both-the medical treatment of cancer. There are various disorders that people are affected by haematology. A few of these different types of blood conditions that are looked at include anemia, hemophilia, general blood clots, bleeding disorders, etc. As for related blood cancers such as leukemia, myeloma, and lymphoma, these are more serious cases that need to be diagnosed

  • Myeloma
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Leukaemia
  • Lymphoma

Lymphatic leukemia which effect the white blood cells(w.b.c) they are closely related to the lymphomas and some of them are unitary diseases which related to the adult T cells leukemia these come under the lymphoproliferative disorders. Mostly they involve in the B-cell sub type lymphocytes. The myeloid leukemia is preferred to the granulocyte precursor in the bone marrow and spinal cord and these arises the abnormal growth in the blood from tissues in the bone marrow. They are mainly related to the hematopoietic cells and these sub title into acute and chronic lymphoblastic leukemia. The acute leukemia is that rapidly producing immature blood cells as they are bulk number of cells healthy cells are not produced in bone marrow due this spill over the blood stream which spread to other body parts. Where as in chronic leukemia highly bulid of  matured cells are formed but still abnormal white cells are formed these can not be treated immediately mostly seen in older people. The cancer which originate from white blood cells are called as lymphoma and this disorder is mainly seen in Hodgkin lymphoma these diseases is treated by radiation and chemotherapy, or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The cancer which starts with in the cell are called as Non Hodgkin lymphocytes and these lymphocytes are of lymph nodes. The bone marrow which develops too many white blood cells leads to multiple myleoma. The further details on malignance are been discussed in Hematology oncology conference-2015.
