Leukemia

Leukemia is a type of blood cancer that usually begins in bone marrow, caused by a rise in the number of abnormal white blood cells. The white blood cells are known as infection fighters when they normally grow and divide in an orderly way, as per body need. But in leukemia, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells, which don't function properly.

These abnormal white blood cells crowd out the red blood cells and platelets.

Types of Leukemia

The four most common types of leukemia are:

Acute lymphocytic (lymphoblastic) leukemia (ALL)

ALL is more common in children. ALL can affect the bone marrow all over the body.
It can also spread to the:

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)

AML is the most common type of acute leukemia in adults. It tends to progress quickly. In this type, the bone marrow makes abnormal myeloblasts (a type of white blood cells), red blood cells or platelets. There are different subtypes of AML As they multiply, they overcrowd the normal cells in the bone marrow and blood. The cancer cells can also spread to other parts of the body.
 

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

CLL usually affects older adults. It progresses slowly. Symptoms may not appear until years after onset. When symptoms do occur, they may include swollen lymph nodes, fatigue, and easy bruising. There are subtypes of CLL.
 

Chronic myeloid Leukemia (CML)

Chronic myeloid Leukemia is quite rare. Only 10 percent of leukemias are CML. It is more common in adults than in children. In CML genetic change turns the myeloid cells (a type of white blood cells) into immature cancer cells. These cells then grow slowly and overcrowd the healthy cells in the bone marrow and blood. It is hard to treat CML.

Signs and Symptoms of Leukemia

Many types of leukemia have no clear symptoms during the early stages. Eventually, symptoms may include
