Risk factors: A hematologist will likely discuss with you your risk factors for dvt- birth control, smoking, family history. ...They will probably also do some blood tests to check for genetic or acquired conditions that can increase your tendency to develop blood clots. Finally, they will discuss with you how long you will need to continue the blood thinners that have likely been prescribed for you.

MGUS: Monoclonal gammopathy is the presence of a protein in your blood all produced from the daughter cells of one type of cell (plasma cells, which are one type of white blood cell.). This protein may be of no significance. Your hematogist can do additional testing to see if you are at risk of this becoming a more serious problem.

Possibly...: It is unusual, and they would have to do 5 additional years of training after radiation oncology, but yes it is possible.
