Leukemia and Lymphoma


  Hematological malignancies are the types of cancer that affect blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes. Chemotherapy is the main stay of treatment choice for this group of malignancies; however, radiation therapy continues to play an important role as part of combined modality treatments, palliative treatments or part of a conditional regimen before bone marrow transplant.You may be referred to see us if you have one of the following:

  • Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Non Hodgkin’s lymphoma (including but not limited to follicular lymphoma, NK/T cell lymphoma, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma or mycosis fungoides, MALT, mantle cell lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, peripheral T-cell lymphoma)
  • Plasmacytoma
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Receiving a bone marrow transplant from another donor.

  Our department has extensive experience treating hematological malignancies, is able to offer several special procedures including total body irradiation and total skin irradiation. We work closely with our hematology colleagues to offer seamless care. A number of clinical trials are open at OSU for this group of patients
