TAKE A LOOK AT LAST YEARS EVENT AND GET THE FACTS ABOUT LEUKEMIA
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (Chronic Lymphoblastic Leukemia, 'CLL'): There are approximately seven-thousand new cases of CLL each year, often in persons over the age of fifty-five. CLL very rarely affects children.
- Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, 'CML'): There are approximately four-thousand four hundred new cases of CML every year, affecting largely adults.
- Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, 'ALL'): There are approximately three-thousand eight hundred new cases of ALL each year. ALL affects adults but is also the most common form of Leukemia found in children.
- Acute Myeloid Leukemia (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, 'AML'): There are approximately ten-thousand six hundred new cases of AML every year involving both children and adults.
The causes of Leukemia are unknown to medical science at this time. Some people are at greater risk of developing Leukemia than others. But for the most part take notice to abnormal symptoms and all make routine visits to the Doctor.
Let's get the picture straight
The types of leukemia can be grouped based on how quickly the disease develops and gets worse. Leukemia is either chronic (which usually gets worse slowly) or acute (which usually gets worse quickly):
Symptoms of Acute leukemia (ALL) The symptoms of acute leukemia usually appear quite suddenly, as this type of leukemia develops quickly.
- weakness, tiredness and looking ‘washed out', which may be due to reduced numbers of red blood cells.
- bleeding that takes a long time to stop, for example, heavy nosebleeds or bruising easily, which may be due to a decrease in platelets.
- regular infections and high temperatures, which may be due to your white blood cells not working properly.
- pain in the bones and joints.
Symptoms of chronic leukemia (CLL)The symptoms of chronic leukemia develop over months or years. Chronic means lasting over a long time. The symptoms are like those of acute leukemia but the lymph nodes, spleen and liver also become larger. Anemia may be a symptom of chronic leukemia. However, most people with chronic lymphocyte leukemia don't know that they have the disease. They may only find out while having a check for another medical problem.
Chronic myeloid leukemia usually progresses slowly at first. However, it may become more active and more like an acute leukemic after several years.
The symptoms of leukemia are similar to symptoms of some other common conditions.
For this reason, you need to be concerned with all symptoms and listen to your body DO NOT SEEK ALTERNATIVE INFORMATION

If you're concerned about your symptoms you should see your doctor
