This is an uncommon type of blood cell cancer that begins from the bone marrow and is slowly progressing. It causes an increase in the number of white blood cells in the blood. Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia is also called Chronic Myelogenous Leukaemia.
Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia is a malignant disorder of the bone marrow that affects white blood cells (mainly the lymphocytes). Bone marrow only releases white blood cells after they are fully developed, but in this condition, it releases a large number of white blood cells that are not fully developed (known as blasts).
Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is one of the quickest-forming blood cell cancers with a rapid progression. This condition leads to an increase in the number of immature cells interfering with the production of normal red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia is a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow that affects the lymphocytes and progresses slower than any other type of leukaemia. It is common leukaemia in adults but rarely seen in children. Globally, 904,000 people were affected with 60,700 deaths in 2015.
Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia is a malignant disorder of the bone marrow that affects white blood
cells (mainly the lymphocytes).
Leukaemia is a cancer of the blood that affects the blood-forming tissues (including bone marrow) and
blood cells (especially the white blood cells), thereby inhibiting the body’s ability to fight infection.
