Weill Cornell Cancer Center

Hematologic Cancers

Hematologic cancers—cancers of the blood and blood-forming organs—include

  • acute and chronic leukemias
  • lymphoma
  • multiple myeloma.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the fifth most common cancer among men and women in America; leukemia is the ninth most common cancer in men and the tenth most common among women.

At the Weill Cornell Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, we take a multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients with different types of hematologic cancers—bringing together a team of

  • medical oncologists
  • radiation oncologists
  • pathologists
  • radiologists
  • oncology nurses
  • psychosocial support specialists
  • other experts

These team members help to create a personalized plan of care for each patient.

Weill Cornell physicians have participated in clinical trials leading to major improvements in the treatment of hematologic cancers. Our oncologists helped pioneer many of the therapies now used to treat adult leukemia and lymphoma, and we offer special expertise in treating older patients diagnosed with these diseases. Patients are offered opportunities to participate in clinical trials of novel therapies for which they may be candidates.

The team of professionals at Weill Cornell is committed to providing excellent care from the moment a patient comes through our doors.
