A Hematologist specializes in researching, diagnosing, treating, and preventing blood disorders and disorders of the lymphatic system (lymph nodes and vessels).

If your Primary Care Physician has recommended that you see a Hematologist, it may be because you are at risk for a condition involving your red or white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, lymph nodes, or spleen. Some of these conditions are:

  • Hemophilia, a disease that prevents your blood from clotting
  • Sepsis, an infection in the blood
  • Leukemia, cancer that affects blood cells
  • Lymphoma, cancer that affects the lymph nodes and vessels
  • Sickle Cell Anemia, a disease that prevents red blood cells from flowing freely through your circulatory system
  • Thalassemia, a condition in which your body doesn’t make enough hemoglobin
  • 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

If you want to learn more about these disorders and other blood conditions, you can find out more through webinars created by the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionTrusted Source (CDC).
