Hematology

Hematology is the science or study of blood, blood-forming organs and blood diseases. The medical aspect of hematology is concerned with the treatment of blood disorders and malignancies, including types of hemophilia, leukemia, lymphoma and sickle-cell anemia. Hematology is a branch of internal medicine that deals with the physiology, pathology, etiology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention of blood-related disorders. Hematologists also focus on lymphatic organs and bone marrow and may diagnose blood count irregularities or platelet irregularities. They are able to treat organs that are fed by blood cells, including the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus and lymphoid tissue.

Hematology science involves the five types of white blood cells — neutrophils, monocytes, lymphocytes, eosinophils and basophils. Red blood cells are also known as erythrocytes. Plasma is the liquid component of blood that carries blood cells through the body. Nutrients, waste, antibodies, proteins, and hormones are also transported in plasma.
