Hematology Cancer Services

Our body’s blood and lymphatic systems are complex, and so are these cancers. This is also an area where new treatments and therapies are being discovered frequently, and the talented specialists at Vidant Health work to stay on top of developments every day.

Blood cancers affect the production and function of your blood cells. Most of these conditions start in the bone marrow, where blood is produced. The three main types of blood cancers include leukemia (caused by the rapid production of abnormal white blood cells), lymphoma (which starts in cells that are part of the body’s immune system) and myeloma (a disease that targets plasma cells).

Treatment for blood-related cancers is varied and complex. Depending on your exact diagnosis and staging, you may receive radiation, chemotherapy or both. We also participate in clinical trials and targeted therapies that are designed to determine better treatment methods with the goal of finding new cures.

Our navigator program is especially important for this type of malignancy, and the only one of its kind in eastern North Carolina. The navigator works with patients and their families to ensure the continuity of care in the transition between inpatient and outpatient care, which is essential to successful treatment. In addition, Vidant Medical Center in Greenville is the only facility in the region to provide complex inpatient regimens for treating aggressive types of leukemia and lymphoma.

In addition to a variety of skilled physicians and nurses, our holistic team approach to treating these conditions includes access to nutritionists, pharmacists, social workers and other specialists who work together to support you with therapies to reduce side effects and increase your energy and strength during treatment.
