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.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society offers a monthly support group for blood cancers. Support groups provide the opportunity to discuss anxieties and concerns with others who share common experiences throughout illness, treatment and survivorship support. Patients as well as their family, friends and caregivers are all welcome to attend. The group provides current and reliable blood cancer information and helps group members deal more effectively with illness. For more information, please call 317-621-4323.
