There are many different types of blood disorders, such as leukocytopenia (low white blood cell count), leukocytosis (elevated white blood cell count), thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), thrombocytosis (elevated platelet count), and monoclonal gammopathy (abnormal M-protein in blood). These blood disorders, and many other blood disorders, sometimes require additional blood or bone marrow testing. Evaluation by a hematologist may be required.
Treatment for various blood disorders depends on many factors, including patient symptoms, patient age, and lab testing. Some blood disorders may not require treatment. Evaluation by a hematologist may be required, to determine whether treatment is needed.
