Hematology-oncology is a subspecialty of oncology that deals with non-surgical treatment of cancer of the blood or bone marrow, such as leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma. Treatments for blood cancers include a variety of therapies, such as radiation, chemotherapy, bone marrow transplantation, blood product transfusion and surgery.
Blood disorders, such as anemia, may occur as a side effect of radiation or other blood cancer therapies. Treatment for anemia may include bone marrow transplantation, blood transfusion, surgery and other courses of treatment as determined by your physician.
