Hematology – Margit Medical Center
Hematology deals with diseases of the blood, hematopoietic and lymphatic organs. With almost any symptom we seek from a doctor, there is a good chance that a blood sample will be part of the test, as many things about the functioning and condition of the body can be learned from the blood count.
If the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets is more or less than necessary, or if the body is not working properly, hematological or other diseases develop in the body. Such a quantitative discrepancy is often revealed in a general laboratory blood sample .
Decreased red blood cell counts cause anemia, which is often caused by iron deficiency in young women. Blood clots are a type of blood clotting disorder that can lead to thrombosis, tumors in the bone marrow or lymphatic systems such as leukemia or lymphoma are also hematological diseases. It is true for all those above, that early detection and early treatment are very important.
