Blood cancer, a type of cancer that can be seen at any age, is a more common disease in children and adults over 50 years of age. Early diagnosis and treatment of the disease, which has a high chance of treatment, are of great importance. Chemotherapy is used in its treatment.
What is Leukemia?
Leukemia can be expressed as blood cancer in its simplest terms. Blood cancer, which occurs as a result of the development of stem cells in the bone marrow due to various reasons and uncontrolled proliferation, can spread primarily to the bone marrow and then to all organs.
What are the Types of Leukemia?
According to the course of the disease, blood cancer is divided into two as acute and chronic. The type of leukemia that progresses rapidly and gives clinical signs and symptoms in a short time is called acute, and the type of leukemia that progresses slowly and develops over many years is called chronic leukemia.
What Are the Symptoms of Leukemia?
The most prominent findings of leukemia, which are similar to the symptoms of other bone marrow diseases, include weakness, pallor, fatigue, and shortness of breath due to anemia. The symptoms of leukemia include infections caused by the weakened immune system and bleeding from the nose, teeth, and gums, unexpected bleeding under the skin, bruising, and red rashes the size of a pinhead on the skin.
How is Leukemia Treatment?
The first method that comes to mind in the treatment of leukemia is chemotherapy. Chemotherapy drugs are chemical drugs that destroy cancer cells that cause leukemia.
