What is the chance of recovery from leukemia?
Leukemia is one of the forms of Cancer that is experiencing some amazing breakthroughs. Your chances of recovery depend greatly on your health and other conditions that can't be plugged in to a mathematical formula. Your doctor or local Cancer Society would be a far better resource for that information.
Type in: Leukemia chatlines.
The reason I suggest this is you can chat with other people in the same situation as yourself and lessen the stress for you. It also gives you the opportunity to find out what new and improved methods that other people with Leukemia are receiving.
Good luck & God Bless
Leukemia is a broad name for some 88 blood diseases. Any disease of the blood or bone marrow is considered Leukemia. Many, many new treatments are extremely promising and successful in many cases. I have leukemia. I have been in treatment for almost 2 years. I am progressing very well.
Absolutely, yes! There are thousands upon thousands of leukemia patients (as well as those with other forms of cancer) who have made a complete recovery, many of whom were told they had little or even no chance of recovery. Never, ever just give up. It has been proven that quite often, the patient's attitude can have a great impact on their recovery, so a positive attitude is crucial. That's not to say one shouldn't be…
Risk factors are any factor that would affect the chance that you would get a disease. Some Risk factors of Acute Myeloid Leukemia are but not limited to: smoking, certain chemical exposures, radiation exposure, certain blood disorders, congenital syndromes, having an identical twin with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, gender, and uncertain, unproven, or controversial risk factors.
Edit - leukemia in cats is NOT the same as leukemia in humans. It is NOT cancer NOR is it a death sentence. I had a FeLV (feline leukemia virus) cat and a FiV cat (feline AIDS) and both cats lived to be 20 and 22, respectively. Yes, he really does. Leukemia in cats is not an automatic death sentence, he has probably got a 50% chance of surviving at least three years. A few…
The ICD9 code for unspecified blood cancer (leukemia) is 208, "Leukemia of unspecified cell type". The specific leukemias have codes from 204-207, i.e.: (204) Lymphoid leukemia (204.0) Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (204.1) Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (205) Myeloid leukemia (205.0) Acute myelogenous leukemia (205.1) Chronic myelogenous leukemia (206) Monocytic leukemia (207) Other specified leukemia (207.0) Acute erythremia and erythroleukemia (207.1) Chronic erythremia (207.2) Megakaryocytic leukemia
Of course! Leukemia, a cancer of the blood, is very treatable especially in children but should not be considered benign or as something that might blow over. As with any disease, the longer it goes without treatment, the worse the conditions gets and the lower the chance of survival. However, after a couple rounds of chemotherapy, most people survive.
You have a greater risk of developing leukemia if it runs in the family but anyone can get it. It also possible that leukemia can strike you at an early age acute leukemia is a common forms of leukemia for children. I found an article that explains different kinds of leukemia that maybe could help you understand and come up with an idea how to cure leukemia or better to prevent it earlier. Please see…
Chronic Leukemia's in chronic leukemia, the leukemia cells come from mature, abnormal cells. The cells thrive for too long and accumulate. The cells grow slowly. Acute Leukemia's acute 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…
Leukemia is the common name for several types of cancer of the blood. There is more specific terminology that describes the specific type of leukemia a person has. There are more than a dozen variations, but the four most common are: # Acute Myelogenous (granulocytic) Leukemia (AML) # Chronic Myelogenous (granulocytic) Leukemia (CML) # Acute Lymphocytic (lymphoblastic) Leukemia (ALL) # Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
Leukemia is a type of white blood cell cancer. It begins in the marrow and the white cell numbers become very large and abnormal. Fewer red blood cells are made than should be. The name actually means "white blood" because of this. A person will have problems with clotting and carrying oxygen as those blood cells types are very low.
