About Oncohematological Disease

In the field of oncology, Israel is widely regarded as one of the leading nations in terms of both research and treatment of cancer. One of the forms of cancer that you can receive treatment for in this country is oncohematological disease.

This disease usually presents itself in the form of leukemia, which is characterized by the uncontrolled proliferation of abnormal leukocytes in the bone marrow and blood cells. A common version of the disease is lymphoblastic leukemia, which affects the bone marrow.

The following are some of the symptoms and the diagnosis of oncohematological disease:

  • Rapid fatigue
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Weakness
  • Anemia
  • Dyspnea
  • Susceptibility to infectious diseases
  • Increased bleeding
  • Anorexia (decreased appetite) and weight loss
  • The appearance of bruises at the slightest injury
  • Unexplained fever (especially at night)
  • Muscle and bone pain


Diagnosing oncohematological disease usually requires a combination of the examination of the functions of the spleen, anamnesis, and a physical examination of the patient.

Usually, an ultrasound is used to achieve a positive diagnosis. It allows the doctors to see any pathological changes in the internal organs, such as the spleen, liver, and kidneys. An increase in lymph node size can also be determined by taking an ultrasound of the abdominal cavity.

Other methods can also be used to obtain important images that aid in the diagnosis of this disease, such as MRIs and CT scans. A picture of the patient’s health can also be obtained by conducting a detailed blood test in which the blood cells and bone marrow samples will be analyzed at the chromosome composition level.

Treatment of Oncohematological Disease

Once the presence and severity of the disease has been determined, it will be time to determine the best course for treatment using various methods developed for oncology. In Israel, patients can expect to undergo a wide range of specialized treatments designed to achieve the best results based on their prognosis.

Various procedures will be used according to the oncology specialist’s recommendations, such as:

  • Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy
  • Allotransplantation of bone marrow
  • Autotransplantation of the bone marrow (usually done on patients suffering from myeloma, lymphoma, or some types of leukemia)
  • Bone marrow transplantation (TCM)

In cases of infectious complications of oncohematological disease, the most advanced antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral drugs may be used to treat the patient using intravenous administration.
