Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is scary. Fortunately, many blood cancers are exceptionally treatable. In fact, it’s often possible to live a full life despite having leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma.
Living well after a cancer diagnosis requires a team of dedicated, sophisticated hematologists (blood disease specialists) devoted to managing every aspect of treatment. At Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute, we provide the personalized, sophisticated care you need and deserve.
Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma care at AHN
Our hematology experts specialize in treating:
- Leukemia: Affects blood cells and starts in the bone marrow
- Lymphoma: Originates in the cells of the body’s immune system
- Myeloma: Starts in bone marrow cells and often destroys bone
At the Cancer Institute, you can expect patient-centric, sophisticated care. You meet with your hematology team typically within three days of your diagnosis. We review every aspect of your diagnosis and discuss a treatment plan with you and your family.
We also cater to your emotional needs after diagnosis. We know the logistics of cancer treatment can be overwhelming. We offer a Navigation Team that coordinates appointments, answers questions, and provides guidance. An oncology social worker helps patients and families cope with the emotional aspects of living with cancer. And our robust support services help you live comfortably during treatment.
