When should you visit a hematologist?

The symptoms that may require a consultation with a hematologist are:

  • Frequent infections (both respiratory, digestive, and of the bladder)
  • Ease of bruising, non-traumatic bruising
  • Prolonged bleeding tendency even with minor cuts, increased bleeding from the nose or gums
  • Bone pain, especially in the spine (vertebrae)
  • Painless enlargement of lymph nodes, especially in one limb, for example
  • Coughing, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, and chest pain
  • Chronic fatigue and lethargy
  • Loss of appetite, nausea, unplanned weight loss
  • Depression, sleepiness, obstructions
  • Deviations in blood laboratory tests

Some of the above-mentioned symptoms may result from the presence of other clinical entities, but they are also non-specific symptoms, e.g. of hematopoietic malignancies. It is often the case that patients ignore the symptoms for a long time, not realizing that they may indicate a developing hematological disease.

Early contact with a hematologist (even when the symptoms seem trivial) may be the first step to implementing timely life-saving treatment.

Treatment of hematological diseases

Due to the variety of hematological diseases, it is difficult to discuss one way to treat them.

In the case of anemia, it may be sufficient to prescribe iron supplements, but in complicated cases, treatment can be implemented only after a very detailed diagnosis and exclusion of a number of diseases that may require specialized therapeutic intervention.

Hematopoietic cancer treatment includes chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and bone marrow stem cell transplantation. Some of the blood cancers, e.g. acute leukemia or aggressive lymphomas, develop very quickly and, if left untreated, lead to death within a few weeks, showing why early diagnosis of hematological diseases is so important.

How to prepare for the first visit?

Before you visit a hematologist for the first time, it is a good idea to complete the full medical documentation on the problem that requires consultation and results of the current laboratory testing, if held by the patient.

If any additional diagnostic tests are performed, please bring them with you to the appointment.

Since the Melita Medical Center is a private facility, you can arrange a visit without having a referral to a hematologist.
