Hemato Oncology

  • Leukemia : A cancer that affects blood cells
  • Lymphoma : A cancer that affects the lymph nodes and vessels
  • Myeloma : A cancer that affects the plasm cells
  • Anemia : A condition in which there aren’t enough red blood cells in your body
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis : A condition in which blood clots form inside your veins

  • Cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and biological therapies
  • Growth factor treatments
  • Immunotherapy
