Our specialist has knowledge in laboratory medicine as well, along with clinical care provides a unique opportunity to combine clinical skills with cutting edge science in making the diagnosis and choosing appropriate treatment plan and monitor progress in world-class standards. We frequently contribute to diagnosis and management in other specialities and in intensive care setting as blood disorders can present in various forms and at times the diagnosis can be very difficult. Treatment of blood cancers depends on the particular type and can vary considerably from patient to patient. We would risk stratifying cancer at the time of diagnosis to understand how the disease will behave in the long term which can influence the treatment plan. The treatment majority of the times are chemotherapy, rarely combined with Radiotherapy. There is a limited role for surgery in Haematological Malignancies. Many of our patients are surprised to hear in some cases treatment may not need to be started immediately. This is referred to as “watchful waiting “who needs periodic follow-up and the need for treatment can be in years.
