Blood Cancers & Disorders

At NYOH, many of our physicians are dually certified in both medical oncology and hematology. Our team of hematologists also works closely with physicians both inside and outside our practice, including radiation oncology, internal medicine, family practice and surgery, ensuring continuity of care for the patient.


Types of Blood Cancers & Disorders

The most advanced treatments for cancers of the blood are available through New York Oncology Hematology focused on the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. 


Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma begins when a lymphocyte (usually a B cell) becomes abnormal. Because lymphatic tissue is in many parts of the body, Hodgkin lymphoma can start almost anywhere. Usually, it's first found in a lymph node.


Hodgkin Lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma is a cancer that begins in cells of the immune system. Hodgkin lymphoma can start almost anywhere. Usually, it's first found in a lymph node above the diaphragm, the thin muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen.



Leukemia is cancer that starts in the tissues that forms blood. The types of leukemia can be grouped based on how quickly the disease develops and gets worse. 


Multiple Myeloma

Myeloma begins when a plasma cell becomes abnormal. The abnormal cell divides to make copies of itself. The new cells divide again and again, making more and more abnormal cells.
