Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is a common type of leukemia found in adults. In this type of cancer, lymphocytes, i.e., white blood cells develop in the bone marrow and travel through the blood. The lymphocytic leukemia cells are majorly found in the lymph nodes and other tissues. There are two types of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, one of which grows slowly, while the other type is fatal. Generally, chronic lymphocytic leukemia do not cause any symptom for a long time. Symptoms generally observed are swollen lymph nodes, fatigue, and easy bruising. Usually, the preferred treatment for chronic lymphocytic leukemia is chemotherapy. Stem-cell transplant is used in rare cases. According to an article published by Apollo Hospitals, an estimated one million cases of chronic lymphocytic leukemia are diagnosed in India every year. Cancer statistics states that, in England, 1 in every 155 men and 1 in every 260 women are affected with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in their lifetime.
