What is Haematology?


Haematology is the branch of medicine that deals with the study of blood and blood-forming tissues. It involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases and disorders related to blood and the organs involved in its production and regulation. This includes the bone marrow, lymphatic system, spleen, and liver.

The study of haematology encompasses a wide range of topics, from the basic physiology of blood cells to the diagnosis and management of complex blood disorders. It also involves the use of laboratory techniques and diagnostic tools to examine blood and bone marrow samples.

If you or someone you know is repeatedly experiencing symptoms associated with blood disorders, it may be necessary to consult a haematologist. These symptoms can include:

  • blood-filled blisters in the mouth
  • blood clotting in the limbs (usually the legs), causing swelling, redness, warmth in the leg
  • fatigue or shortness of breath
  • frequent or increased infections
  • enlarged lymph nodes in the neck
  • bone pain
  • paleness
  • petechiae (a skin rash with pinpoint red spots caused by too few platelets)
  • swollen lymph nodes
