WHAT IS LEUKEMIA?

Leukemia is a cancer that begins in blood-forming tissue, usually the bone marrow.

It leads to the excessive production of abnormal white blood cells, which fight infection.

But a higher number of white blood cells means there is “less room” for other cells, including red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body, and platelets, which cause blood to clot when the skin is cut.

There are many different types of leukemia, defined by the immune cells they affect and how the disease progresses.

For all types combined, 9,900 people in the UK were diagnosed with leukemia in 2015, Cancer Research UK statistics reveal.

And in the US, about 60,300 people were told they had the disease last year, according to the National Cancer Institute.

Most cases have no obvious cause, since cancer is not contagious or hereditary.

Leukemia generally becomes more common with age, with the exception of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which peaks in children.

Other risk factors include being male, being exposed to certain chemicals or radiation, and some bone marrow disorders.

The symptoms are generally vague and get worse over time.

These may include:

  • Fatigue
  • frequent infections
  • sweats
  • bruises
  • Heavy periods, nosebleeds, or bleeding gums
  • palpitations
  • Difficulty breathing

Acute leukemia, which progresses rapidly and aggressively, is often curable with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or stem cell transplantation.

Chronic forms of the disease, which generally progress slowly, tend to be incurable; however, these patients can often live with the disease.
