A Full Range of Blood Cancer Care
- Blood Cancer Diagnosis
When cancer affects your blood cells, the cancerous cells don’t function normally. That can lead to symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes, abnormal bleeding, fevers, bone and joint pain, weight loss and other health issues.
At AdventHealth Ottawa, formerly Ransom Memorial Health, our diagnostic team will guide you or your loved one through the right combination of tests for an accurate diagnosis, including one or more of these:
- Blood and urine tests
- Bone marrow aspiration (small samples of marrow are removed from your pelvis for biopsy)
- CT scan
- Echocardiogram (uses sound waves to make pictures of your heart)
- Leading-Edge Blood Cancer Care
Blood cancers — such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma — usually begin in the bone marrow where blood cells are formed, or in the lymphatic system, which helps protect your body from infection.
If you’ve been diagnosed with a blood cancer, you can count on our hematology oncology team to help you live a longer and more fulfilling life. Working with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your condition, your goals and your overall health, we’ll give you the best possible chance for recovery.
- Personalized Blood Cancer Treatments
Everyone with a blood cancer deserves care that’s personalized to fit their specific condition. Our expert hematologists use the latest treatment strategies to focus on your unique needs, including:
- Biologic therapy (also called immunotherapy)
- Radiation therapy
- Targeted drug therapy
Whatever blood cancer treatments you and your team choose, we’ll care for the whole you. That means helping with any side effects of your treatments, advising you on the best foods to eat, and following up with you after your treatments end. We’re here for you — for the long run.
