Blood disorders, both benign and malignant, are the territory of the hematologist. Dr. Steven Rosen details a number of different cancers that are blood disorders.

Acute leukemia develops very quickly. Chronic leukemia develops slowly over a period of years.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and Hodgkin's disease which is less common but is still a lymphoma, are cancers that are blood disorders. Multiple myeloma is an incurable blood cancer.
