What is Leukemia Disease

Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. Your bone marrow produces blood cells, and in leukemia, some of those cells turn into abnormal leukocytes or white blood cells. These cancerous cells don’t function like normal white blood cells, making it harder for your body to fight infections. There are several different types of leukemia, but the two main categories are chronic and acute forms. Chronic leukemia grows slowly, while acute forms develop quickly and require immediate treatment.

Type of Leukemia Disease

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

CLL is a type of cancer that occurs when there is an abnormal increase in the number of white blood cells called "B-lymphocytes" in our body.

Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)

Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, commonly known as ALL, is a type of blood cancer that starts from white blood cells (lymphocytes) in the bone marrow.

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a type of blood cancer that affects the bone marrow and blood cells.

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a rare type of cancer that starts in the bone marrow, where blood cells originate. It is caused by a genetic abnormality that leads to an overproduction of white blood cells called myeloid cells.

Symptoms of Leukemia Disease

Weakness or fatigue
Fever or chills
Weight loss

Risk factors

Exposure to certain chemicals

Exposure to certain chemicals in cancer refers to the harmful effects of various chemicals on human health that may increase the risk of developing cancer.


In cancer, smoking is the single biggest cause of this life-threatening disease. When you breathe in tobacco smoke, you expose yourself to harmful chemicals

Genetic disorders

Genetic disorders in cancer refer to changes or mutations that occur in a person's DNA, which can lead to the uncontrolled growth of cells and the development of tumors.

Exposure to certain chemicals

Exposure to certain chemicals is a major contributing factor in the development of cancer, as they have the ability to damage cells and alter their DNA.
