Hematology

Unless you are diagnosed with a blood-related disease, you may not be familiar with the term hematology. It is a subspecialty of internal medicine and deals with the diagnosis and treatment of blood-related conditions.

Tanner Health System brings together specialists in hematology and oncology to treat a wide range of blood disorders. These include anemia, sickle cell disease, platelet and bleeding disorders — such as hemophilia — and some cancers.

Experts in hematology and oncology

Blood and blood-related diseases, especially cancers, are more common than you might expect. For example:

  • Approximately 1 in 100 women have a bleeding disorder, although many are unaware.
  • As many as 900,000 Americans annually experience a potentially dangerous blood clot.
  • About 100,000 people live with sickle cell disease (SCD), which affects red blood cells. SCD is the most common genetic disorder in the U.S.
  • In 2019, 10% of new cancer cases in the U.S. will be leukemia lymphoma or myeloma — all blood-related cancers.

Because blood is everywhere in your body, blood diseases can affect any organ, making blood diseases especially complex to diagnose and treat.

At Tanner, our hematologists are part of multidisciplinary teams that include specialists in internal medicine, pathology and transplantation (some patients with blood cancers require a stem-cell transplant as part of their treatment).

Together, your care team will develop a tailored treatment plan with you for your condition.

Esophageal Cancer: Symptoms, Screening and Prevention
Esophageal Cancer: Symptoms, Screening and Prevention

Esophageal cancer begins in the the long, hollow tube that runs from your throat to your stomach. Less common than other forms of cancer, it's particularly dangerous because it's often not diagnosed until at an advanced stage.

Being Black Raises Your Risk for Some Cancers
Being Black Raises Your Risk for Some Cancers

Not only does different cancers affect people differently, but sometimes your race raises your risk of developing cancer or your likelihood of successful treatment. Disparities in cancer rates among different racial and ethnic groups can be related to socioeconomic status, access to healthcare, systemic barriers and cultural factors. To address these disparities, we must all raise awareness, promote early detection and screenings, improve access to quality care and address the social determinants of health that contribute to worse patient outcomes.
