At Millennium Oncology we have medical oncologists that also practice hematology, or the study of blood—including red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, lymph nodes and spleen. Our hematologists can treat patients with blood conditions and blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Blood cancers typically start where blood is produced in the bone marrow. The normal blood cell development process is usually disrupted by an abnormal blood cell or cancer cell. These cells prevent your body from normal functions, like fighting infection or excessive bleeding.
For more information on blood disorders or cancers, visit one of our physicians or visit some helpful websites like American Society of Hematology, American Cancer Society or Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
