Our Oncology and Hematology experts endeavor to provide patients expert care in a compassionate environment. Our specialists and experienced staff are committed to caring for and educating each of their patients. Premier Healthcare's Oncology / Hematology division treats both blood disorders (such as anemia, leukemia, or blood-clotting disorders) and cancer in its many forms.
While there are many cancers that can affect humans, it is important to realize that not all tumors are cancerous. Benign (noncancerous) tumors do not metastasize (spread to other parts of the body) and, with very rare exceptions, are not life threatening. Early detection is key to the successful treatment of most cancers.
Often it can be a combination of treatment and lifestyle changes that can help to remedy and / or prevent these conditions. Many cancers can be prevented by not smoking, better nutrition (more fruits and vegetables, more whole grains, less meat, and fewer refined carbohydrates), maintaining a healthy body weight (through exercise and diet), minimizing sunlight exposure, and being vaccinated against certain infectious diseases.
The Oncology / Hematology division of Premier Healthcare is located in the Landmark Medical Center in Bloomington, Indiana. We also have an infusion center at this location, staffed by Oncology Certified Registered Nurses.
