What is a hematologic condition? And how can you recognize it?
A hematologic issue is a problem with the blood, and it can affect your overall health. Hematologic problems can occur in the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, and the proteins involved in bleeding and clotting (hemostasis and thrombosis).
Some symptoms include:
- Fatigue and weakness
- Shortness of breath
- Frequent headaches
- Recurrent fever and infections
- Abnormal bleeding and bruising
- Excessive blood clotting
