WELLNESS ONCOLOGY & HEMATOLOGY
Hematologic malignancies are cancers of the blood. These cancers manifest themselves in ways that affect blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes. Because blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes are so completely interconnected, diseases that affect one may lead to the spread of disease to other related sites.
In the case of a suspected hematological malignancy, a blood count and blood film will be needed to detect malignant (cancerous) cells. If there is reason to believe that cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, a surgical biopsy may be needed, and in other cases a bone marrow biopsy may be required.
Due to the wide range of hematological malignancies, there are also many ways to treat blood cancers. From chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy to bone marrow transplants, Wellness Oncology & Hematology has the medical expertise to diagnose and customize a treatment plan to combat the spread of disease, providing the best chance of remission and cure.
