About 5 years..depending on how healthy the cat stays..
it depends. the average is 2-7 years. i know someone who has leukemia and has got diagnosed about 6 years ago. There is always hope. but that is the average time range that doctors will give you to live.
Some types of Leukemia seem to be able to be cured.As of today, there is no cure of leukemia. However, there is drugs available to help you live with the disease.
Since no one can predict anyone's date of death, except GOD, a person with leukemia could possibly live until they die, same as people without leukemia. However, to speak in statistical terms, you would need to provide the type of leukemia, the stage it is, the age of the person and if the leukemia is treatable. If it is, well, they could outlive you! Do you have a monetary reason for asking? An inheritance maybe?
as long as you want....midgets
Indeed they can
it depends on the treatment.
There's really no way to tell. Leukemia is a mutation, it's probably been around almost as long as humans have been.
If you have leukemia, you WILL be living with it "for life", no matter how long your life happens to be. That said, there are some excellent treatments for leukemia that have extended your expected lifetime by years. (We haven't had them available for long enough to say "decades", but that's certainly possible.) In any event, the newer treatments, in many cases, will let you live long enough to die of something entirely unrelated.
It depends on the patient and how severe it is. It's also posssible they could live if they get a bone marrow transplant. Surely there is a median time period of survival - what is it!!??
cancer live leukemia
Marie Curie - was born Manya Sklodowska in Warsaw in 1867 - she died of leukemia probably due to long exposure to radiation in 1934.
Acute leukemia is not always fatal. Many patients can recover with treatment and live a normal life. The survival rate depends a great deal on the sub-type, patient's age and general health, and other individual factors. See link below for more information.
You cannot catch leukemia from contact of another that has leukemia.
There are 4 types of leukemia, they are: Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML), Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
Chronic Leukemia'sin chronic leukemia, the leukemia cells come from mature, abnormal cells. The cells thrive for too long and accumulate. The cells grow slowly.Acute Leukemia'sacute leukemia, on the other hand, develops from early cells, called "blasts". Blasts are young cells that divide frequently. In acute leukemia cells, they don't stop dividing like their normal counterparts do.The remaining two types refer to the type of cells in which the leukemia started from.Myelogenous LeukemiaMyelogenous leukemia develops from myeloid cells. The disease can either be chronic or acute, referred as chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), or acute myelogenous leukemia (ALL).Lymphocytic LeukemiaLymphocytic leukemia develops from cells called lymphoblasts or lymphocytes in the blood marrow. The disease can be acute or chronic, referred as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), or acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL).
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is leukemia which affects the lymphocytes.
is leukemia infectious
Leukemia is not transmitted.
Leukemia is a noun.
