Blood & Lymphatic Cancer
When faced with a diagnosis of a blood or lymphatic cancer, such as leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a blood disorder, you need the support of a team of experts. At Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center, our experienced team offers you hope and compassionate support.
Our specialists use state-of-the-art testing to diagnose your condition, and, together, they determine the best course of action depending on the type and stage of the cancer. We offer the latest and most-advanced treatments, including the latest clinical trial therapies.
We treat all types and stages of blood cancers and disorders – both malignant (cancerous) and benign (noncancerous) – including:
- Leukemias: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), Acute myeloid leukemia (AML), Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), Chronic myelophocytic leukemia (CML), Rare leukemia
- Lymphomas: Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Bcell lymphoma, Folicular lymphoma, Mantle cell lymphoma, T-cell lymphoma, Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), NK-cell lymphoma
- Myelomas: Multiple myeloma, Myelodysplastic syndrome, Myeloproliferative disorder, Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia
Our patients benefit from an evidence-based, multidisciplinary approach. That means your case is discussed in detail at regularly scheduled conferences attended by all treating physicians and other healthcare professionals. You will also meet with your team of doctors and support staff in one location, reducing the need to travel to several facilities. A nurse navigator will also be assigned to you and guide you through every step of the way to offer education, coordinate appointments, tests and treatments, and offer you and your family support.
Your physical, emotional and spiritual needs are important, too, so care plans include support services from social workers, psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, nutritionists and chaplains, as well as survivorship services and prevention.
The blood and lymphatic cancer team at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center has specialized education, training and experience in cancer care and includes experts in many specialties.
