What is leukemia?
Our blood comprises of three main types of cells including white blood cells (WBCs), red blood cells (RBCs) and platelets. Leukemia is a cancer of the blood cells in which bone marrow starts to make a lot of abnormal WBCs which increasingly outnumbers the normal blood cells. This tends to cause serious problems such as anemia or blood loss, bleeding, and infections.
WBCs being an important element of our immune system guards our body from foreign infections. In leukemia, WBCs start dividing irregularly and stop functioning normally.
If you develop symptoms of leukemia, it is important to know exactly what type it is because the outlook (prognosis) and treatments vary for the different types of blood cancers.
Though people can get leukemia at any age, it is most common in people over 60 years.
