A haematologist is a medical professional who specialises in diagnosing, treating and managing diseases of the blood including leukaemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers along with blood-producing organs (the bone marrow, spleen and lymphoid tissues). Haematologists also specialise in transfusion medicine, and in the effect that other diseases have on the blood.
