In brief: See below

Hematology is the study of the blood, blood-forming organs and diseases of the blood including benign and malignant conditions as well as abnormalities of the clotting system. Hematologist are specially trained to examine the blood and bone marrow and treat both benign conditions such as anemia (reduced red blood cells) and malignant conditions such as leukemia (abnormal white cell count).

In brief: Benign and malignant

I divide hematology into benign and malignant heme.
Benign hematology specialists diagnose and treat clotting problems, or red cell, hemoglobin, iron, white cell, or platelet problems (either too high or too low). Malignant hematology includes diseases like leukemia, mds, lymphoma, and myeloma. Stem cell transplant is a sub-specialty of malignant hematology. More info: http://bit.Ly/mymtva.
