Overview of Malignant Hematology

Blood Cells

A hematologic condition is one that affects the blood, and malignant hematology focuses on evaluating and treating types of blood cancers. Patients with malignant blood disorders are monitored after diagnosis and typically receive ongoing treatment for many years following. Hematology disorders may involve several areas of the blood or body, such as

  • White blood cells
  • Red blood cells
  • Bone marrow
  • Lymph nodes

At Regional Cancer Care Associates, our medical team is dedicated to improving the quality of life and overall wellbeing of our patients. Our medical specialists are experienced in diagnosing different blood disorders and providing first-class treatment that’s based on the individual needs of each patient.

Blood Cancers We Treat

In our state-of-the-art facilities, we treat patients with a broad spectrum of blood cancers. The types of malignant blood conditions that we treat include:

Myeloid (White Blood Cell) Disorders

White blood cells are vital to the body’s defense against infection. If the body produces an abnormal amount of white blood cells, this indicates a disorder. Myeloid disorders include:

  • Congenital and cyclical neutropenia
  • Hoyeraal-Hreidarsson syndrome
  • Chédiak-Higashi syndrome
  • Hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome
  • Chronic granulomatous disease
  • Lysosomal storage diseases

Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs)

MPNs are disorders characterized by an overproduction of blood cells. They’re typically chronic and may produce significant symptoms in some patients. These conditions include:

  • Myelogenous leukemia
  • Polycythemia vera
  • Primary myelofibrosis
  • Systemic mastocytosis
  • Hippel-Lindau syndrome

Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Myelodysplastic syndrome is a fairly common blood disorder in which blood cells in the bone marrow do not mature or develop into healthy blood cells. This condition frequently recurs in the elderly and is expertly monitored and treated in a variety of ways, depending on its severity.

Aplastic Anemia

This condition occurs when the body cannot produce enough new blood cells. This condition ranges from mild to severe, may develop at any age, and can slowly progress over time.

Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

A rare, acquired disorder, this condition occurs when a change in stem cells causes the body to produce cells that are missing protective proteins. This results in the destruction of red blood cells (hemolysis), blood clots (thrombosis), and impaired bone marrow function.

This condition begins in the bone marrow and often quickly progresses into the blood. This condition can spread to other parts of the body, such as the lymph nodes, liver, and central nervous system.

Lymphoma is a type of cancer that starts in the cells within the body’s immune system. There are several types of lymphoma, such as Hodgkin’s disease. There are two main types of lymphoma:

Other types of lymphoma include:

Plasma cell Disorders

Plasma cells are the cells that produce antibodies that help fight infection and strengthen the immune system. Plasma cell disorders can damage the bones, organs, and other areas of the body. Types of plasma cell disorders include:

  • Multiple myeloma
  • Plasma cell leukemia (PCL)
  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Capillary leak syndrome
  • TEMPI syndrome
