Blood cancer includes cancers affecting the blood, bone marrow and lymphatic systems. St. Luke’s team of board-certified medical oncologists / hematologists provide care for adults, treating the full spectrum of blood disorders, from benign blood conditions to blood cancers.

Creation of abnormal red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets may create problems that can escalate into uncontrolled growth and turn into cancer. Leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are the three main types of blood cancers.
