swollen lymph nodes in the neck, groin, collar bone, or armpit. If you are tired more often. constipation, night sweats, fevers, or low grade fevers are all the symptoms I know of
Chronic and Acute. Chronic worsens slowly, acute worsens quickly.. Chronic leukemias are Chronic Lymphoblasitc Leukemia andChronic Myeloid Leukemia.. Acute leukemias are Acute Lymphoblastice Leukemia and Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Answer . As electricity passes through wires it creates and electromagnetic field. When people are near high voltage wires they are subject to this electromagnetic radiation. Though there may be no direct proof that this causes leukemia, there is evidence that other types of radiation does. This …also applies to electric blankets, living near radio transmission towers, and cell phones held next to the head. (MORE)
What is the overall outlook of lymphoma in horses when the lymph gland itself is swollen?
Yes and No. Cancer is a word that covers many individual diseases and within a subset Lymphoma there are deadly ones and relatively benign ones. However depending on when it is diagnosed and at what stage the cancer is at will determine if the cancer can be treated. If you have a benign form of canc…er but it has progressed so far when it is finally diagnosed it might not be able to be treated. On the other hand you could have a bad type but caught early and with good treatment it might be completely eradicated. Early diagnosis, follow the treatment and watch for any signs are the watchwords. (MORE)
You get leukemia when abnormal of control to such an extent that normal blood cells are unable to develop. Leukemia starts in the bone marrow---the soft, spongy material inside bones where blood cells develop from stem cells. Leukemia most often affects the white blood cells, which protect the body …against infection. The disease begins when normal development of stem cells into white blood cells goes wrong, creating abnormal white blood cells. These white blood cells are immature that they can't fight viruses like they are suppose to do. Eventually the abnormal white cells overtake other types of blood cells, including red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the body tissues; and platelets, which enable the blood to clot. Leukemia therefore interferes with the blood's ability to clot and carry oxygen.Cells multiply out you can't catch leukaemia of anyone because it isn't contagious. In most cases of leukemia, there are too many abnormal white blood cells. These leukemia cells crowd out the normal blood cells in your bone marrow and build up in your lymph nodes, liver, and spleen. This makes it hard for your body to fight infections. No one knows what causes leukaemia. i dont no (MORE)
It's actually MULT lymphoma. Taken from the website www.healthatoz.com,. "MALT lymphomas are solid tumors that originate from cancerous growth of immune cells that are recruited to secretory tissue such as the gastrointestinal tract, salivary glands, lungs, and the thyroid gland."
Any of various usually malignant tumors that arise in the lymph nodes or in other lymphoid tissue. . For the source and more detailed information concerning this subject, click on the related links section indicated below.
Leukemia (also spelled Leucamia, or leukaemia) is an umbrella term for cancer of the blood-forming tissues or bone marrow, characterized by the production too many blood cells. While most people associate leukemia with an excessive number of white blood cells, certain forms of the cancer produce too… many immature red blood cells. There are four main types: 1. Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) 2. Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) 3. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) 4. Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) Both forms of myelogenous leukemia are more common in adults; acute lymphocytic leukemia is the most typical form seen in children. ALL, the most common cause of death from disease in children, is characterized by rapidly forming immature red blood cells that have a short life cycle. This causes them to crowd the bone marrow, making it impossible to produce healthy red blood cells. Chronic leukemia, on the other hand, is caused by the slow build up of mature, abnormal blood cells that have a longer-than-normal life span. As a result, the body tends to produce too many new white blood cells. According to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society, the five-year survival rate for all types of leukemia is approximately 54%; survival rates for lymphocytic leukemia is considerably higher than average, particularly in children. Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the bone marrow, the soft, spongy center of the bone that produces blood cells. (MORE)
In most cases, yes. However it depends on the stage of the lymphoma and where it is in the body. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is actually an umbrella category for a range of types of lymphoma. Some are more aggressive than others. Treatment these days is very good and there is a good response rate both w…ith conventional medical treatment, and sometimes with nutritional treatments. I say this as a 19-year survivor of conventional medical treatment, and I have a friend who went on a macrobiotic diet and beat it as well. (Note: I have read recently that diets that include some animal protein are being used successfully in treatment, as different nutritional-based therapies work from different theories.) (MORE)
Acute leukemias develop and progress rapidly, while chronic leukemias develop slowly and have a better prognosis. If someone was diagnoed with leukemia, the blood smear and other tests can indicate if this patient have chronic or acute leukemia..
Both Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma are lymphomas, a type of cancer that originates in a subset of white blood cells called lymphocytes - an important component of your immune system. The main difference is in the specific lymphocyte each involves.. A doctor can tell the difference be…tween Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's by examining the cancer cells under a microscope. If in examining the cells, the doctor detects the presence of a specific type of abnormal cell called a Reed-Sternberg cell, the lymphoma is classified as Hodgkin's. If the Reed-Sternberg cell is not present, the lymphoma is classified as non-Hodgkin's.. The distinction is important because the treatment for each type can be very different. (MORE)

The main difference between myelodysplastic anemia and aplastic anemia is that in myelodysplastic anemia, the bone marrow produces abnormal or immature blood cells that do not function properly, whereas in aplastic anemia the marrow stops producing new blood cells entirely.
Leukemia and lymphoma are types of cancers. Cancer is not contagious. It is a disease in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth. Nearly all cancers are caused by abnormalities in the genetic material of the transformed cells.
Leukemia is cancer of the bone marrow or blood. Lymphoma is cancer of the Lymph glands in the body that are the biggest part of our immune system.
Leukemia is Blood Cancer. It can kill you, just like any other cancer, but once you get it, it is very hard to treat.
Both acute and chronic leukemia are blood cancers. Blood cells are produced in the bone marrow. In leukemia, a groupof cells in the bone marrow divide too much and thus produce toomany blood cells which are also non-functional. On top of producinguseless blood cells, the cancerous cells in the bone… marrow alsobecome more and more, taking away space and nutrients from thehealthy cells. Depending on the maturity level of the cancerous cells, theleukemia will be chronic or acute. Acute leukemias result when very immature blood cells are dividingrapidly. These require urgent treatment and can otherwise be deadlywithin months, a year or two. Chronic leukemias are caused when quite mature cells becomecancerous. These tend to affect the bone marrow's other functionsrelatively little and are less aggressive, but can also be harderto notice. Treatment should still be begun as soon as possible, asthe chances for recovery are better the earlier treatment isstarted. There are many different sub-types of both chronic and acuteleukemias. In most cases today, the correct medical treatment canprevent the disease from becoming worse, and certain types can evenbe cured completely. (MORE)

My son was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder at the age of20 months. While receiving therapy. He displayed many symptoms ofearly Autism but no one wanted to put that label on him yet. Soabout 6 months later, just when we were getting into the swing ofthings and I was learning everything tha…t i could about hisdisability when he fell ill with a horrible fever. It was so badand wouldn't break so I rushed him into the nearest er. Blood teststhat were performed came back abnormal and they wanted to checkfurther. More blood tests and a lumbar puncture were to confirmthat my son was severely anemic, neutropenic, and needed severalblood transfusions. He was diagnosed with ALL (Acute LymphoblasticLeukemia) Almost 3 years later, here we are with only a few moremonths of chemotherapy to go (he is 5 1/2 years old today) and hisschool wants to do more evaluations on him since he will startkindergarten next year. His speech issues and sensory problems aregetting better, but he remains still very developmentally delayed.His recent evals conclude that my son is on the Autistic spectrum,moderate to severe in some areas. He cannot continue schooling atthat school because they do not have all the resources to care fora child that severe. So off to a new school come August of 2011. Iam very happy that after all this time, he has finally beendiagnosed. But at the same time, I am heart broken once again.Another diagnosis, more therapy. On the bright side, he will becancer free come July 2011! For such a young boy, he has beenthough an awful lot, but everything happens for a reason. So toanswer your question, I cannot totally answer that. I do know thatmy son has Autsim and cancer (leukemia) but I am pretty sure thatthis is very rare as I cannot find any information anywhere on theinternet. I cannot find a connection. The only thing I have come upwith is that maybe my son has a weak immune system and maybesomething triggered both the Autsim and cancer, or maybe made himmore prone to both. I guess I will never really know. I hoped Ihave helped you out somewhat. Take care. The two are definitely related in my daughter's case. GoogleNataliesTrekCIC and contact me if you want more info.

Carcinoma is a form of cancer that develops in tissues covering or lining organs of the body, such as the skin, the uterus, the lung, or the breast. and Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system carries lymph fluid and white blood cells throughout body. The purpose of the ly…mphatic system is to fight infections. Like all cancers, lymphoma happens when the body's cells grow out of control, often causing tumors to grow. Most lymphomas are made up of white blood cells called either T cells or B cells. Lymphoma cells are sometimes found in the blood, but tend to form solid tumors in the lymph system or in organs. These tumors can often be felt as a painless lump or swollen gland almost anywhere in the body. (MORE)

Damage to the bone marrow, by way of displacing the normal bone marrow cells with higher numbers of immature white blood cells, results in a lack of blood platelets, which are important in the blood clotting process. This means people with leukemia may easily become bruised, bleed excessively, or de…velop pinprick bleeds (petechiae). White blood cells, which are involved in fighting pathogens, may be suppressed or dysfunctional. This could cause the patient's immune system to be unable to fight off a simple infection or to start attacking other body cells. Because leukemia prevents the immune system from working normally, some patients experience frequent infection, ranging from infected tonsils, sores in the mouth, or diarrhea to life-threatening pneumonia or opportunistic infections. Finally, the red blood cell deficiency leads to anemia, which may cause dyspnea and pallor.

You must go to a cancer specialist since it is a type of cancer. You will most likely get radiation treatments and hopefully stop it before it can stop you. A lot of times the patient gets bone marrow transplants unless the leukemia relapses.
leukemoid reaction is an increase in normally functioning white blood cells, in leukemia the wbc's are either blasts (immature, as in acute leukemias--aml) or mature cells (chronic leukemias--cml). a leukemoid reaction will resolve itself.
Blood cancer is a generalized term for malignancy which attacks the blood, bone marrow, or lymphatic system. There are three kinds of blood cancer: leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.
Lymphoma is a cancer dealing with the lymphatic system while Myeloma is the uncontrollable production of white blood cells.
lymphoma is potentially fatal without treatment if you or someone you know has it and cant afford treatment you should contact your nearest cancer center
MALT lymphomas are solid tumors that originate from cancerous growth of immune cells that are recruited to secretory tissue such as the gastrointestinal tract, salivary glands, lungs, and the thyroid gland.
Although many cancers may be prevented by making diet and life style changes which reduce risk factors, there is currently no known way to prevent lymphomas.
There have been some studies that have shown a loose association between retroviruses, such as HTLV-I, and some rare forms of lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus has been linked to Burkitt's lymphoma in African countries.

Lymphoma is present as a solid tumor of lymphoid cells.(cancer) Anaemia is a decrease in number of the red cells. Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphocytes, a type of cell that forms part of the immune system. Typically, lymphoma is present as a solid tumor of lymphoid cells. Treatment migh…t involve chemotherapy and in some cases radiotherapy and/or bone marrow transplantation, and can be curable depending on the histology, type, and stage of the disease. These malignant cells often originate in lymph nodes, presenting as an enlargement of the node (a tumor). It can also affect other organs in which case it is referred to as extranodal lymphoma. Extranodal sites include the skin, brain, bowels and bone. Lymphomas are closely related to lymphoid leukemias, which also originate in lymphocytes but typically involve only circulating blood and the bone marrow (where blood cells are generated in a process termed haematopoesis) and do not usually form static tumors. There are many types of lymphomas, and in turn, lymphomas are a part of the broad group of diseases called hematological neoplasms. Anemia (/ÉËniËmiÉ/; also spelled anaemia and anÃ¦mia; from Ancient Greek: á¼Î½Î±Î¹Î¼Î¯Î± anaimia, meaning lack of blood, from á¼Î½- an-, "not" + Î±á¼·Î¼Î± haima, "blood") is a decrease in number of red blood cells (RBCs) or less than the normal quantity of hemoglobin in the blood. However, it can include decreased oxygen-binding ability of each hemoglobin molecule due to deformity or lack in numerical development as in some other types of hemoglobin deficiency. Because hemoglobin (found inside RBCs) normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, anemia leads to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in organs. Since all human cells depend on oxygen for survival, varying degrees of anemia can have a wide range of clinical consequences. Anemia is the most common disorder of the blood. The several kinds of anemia are produced by a variety of underlying causes. It can be classified in a variety of ways, based on the morphology of RBCs, underlying etiologic mechanisms, and discernible clinical spectra, to mention a few. The three main classes include excessive blood loss (acutely such as a hemorrhage or chronically through low-volume loss), excessive blood cell destruction (hemolysis) or deficient red blood cell production (ineffective hematopoiesis). Of the two major approaches to diagnosis, the "kinetic" approach involves evaluating production, destruction and loss, and the "morphologic" approach groups anemia by red blood cell size. The morphologic approach uses a quickly available and low-cost lab test as its starting point (the MCV). On the other hand, focusing early on the question of production may allow the clinician to expose cases more rapidly where multiple causes of anemia coexist. (MORE)

First, if you have been diagnosed by a trained oncologist (a doctor who specializes in cancer treatment), you are undoubtedly afraid or worried. But the good news is that early detection can often produce a positive outcome. Years ago, leukemia (cancer of the blood cells) was considered almost untre…atable, but that is no longer the case. Chemotherapy can be painful and have difficult side effects, but depending on how far along your disease is, it can also lead to a good outcome for you.
