A hematologist is a blood specialist who focuses on the study, science and diagnosis of blood conditions, as well as conditions that affect blood-forming organs (bone marrow, lymphatic system and immune system). A hematologist deals mainly with blood disorders which are usually cancers and malignancies – some of these include leukemia, and other blood disorders. Under hematology, a hematologist can choose to focus on specific fields such as bone marrow, lymphatic organs or blood irregularities such as platelet irregularities and hemophilia. Hematology is a subject where lab technicians work with laboratory technicians in the examination of samples of blood forming tissue and blood.
Hematologists diagnose blood disorders by examining and analysing the signs and symptoms of the patient. Conditions include leukemia, lymphoma, hemophilia. Leukemia and lymphoma refer to disorders of the lymph organs and lymph vessels while hemophilia is a disorder arising from genetic diseases of the platelets. Most of these blood disorders are inherited from parents and hence require screening of the whole family. Hematologists conduct regular screening of patients with blood disorders, especially blood cancers, to ensure that they do not recur as well as to keep them under control.
