Hematologic Cancer Programs
The hematologists and oncologists at Cancer Institute of Florida treat a variety of hematological cancers, diseases and disorders. Hematology is the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the blood and bone marrow as well as of the immunologic, hemostatic (blood clotting) and vascular systems, such as leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, anemia, hemophilia and others. Because of the nature of blood, the science of hematology profoundly affects the understanding of many diseases.

Though there aren't as many hematologic cancers, which are cancers of the blood, bone marrow, plasma cells and lymph nodes, the ones that exist are pretty big names. Leukemia, Lymphoma, Multiple Myeloma and Myelodisplastic Syndrome (MDS) are cancers that the hematologists at Cancer Institute of Florida are familiar with treating. The specific causes and risk factors for cancers of the blood are still greatly unknown. For this reason, the research and treatments are in the early stages and often innovative. Each hematologist at Cancer Institute of Florida takes the time to understand the exact type and stage of blood, bone marrow and lymph node cancer to create highly individualized treatment plans.
