What is Hematologic Cancer? | MedStar Health

Shweta Kurian, MD, hematologist, checks on a patient with hematologic cancer.
At MedStar Health, we provide care and treatment in the diagnosis and management of cancers of the blood and lymph systems, such as:

We believe that treatment should be a decision made by a combination of people: the patient, the patient's family and loved ones, the hematologist, and the referring physician. Once your diagnosis is confirmed, your medical oncology/hematology team will create a written plan for you about the treatment and will discuss it with you and your loved ones, so that everyone knows what to expect.

We know a cancer diagnosis is overwhelming, so we work to provide a full range of support services to our patients, including:

  • A dedicated team of doctors and other medical staff assigned to your case

  • Access to some of the most advanced clinical trials and research

  • Easy accessibility to your doctors and your entire team

  • Patient and Community Services including information and advice on:

  • Nutrition

  • Psychosocial counseling

  • Spiritual care

  • Alternative care

MedStar Health's reputation across the region is of compassionate healers: doctors and nurses who are tremendously invested in easing a patient's journey through the cancer treatment process. Whether you require specialized hematologic care, targeted chemotherapy, or immunotherapy, you can trust our doctors will provide the most advanced care in a compassionate and caring setting.
