About the disease

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a cancer that develops in the bone marrow, which is responsible for producing red and white blood cells and platelets. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia develops in the cells that later become lymphocytes. These cells are a subtype of white blood cells and they are a part of the immune system. They are also known as natural killer cells, as they are responsible for fighting and preventing development of different infections.

Lymphocytes accumulate in the lymphs, which is where their name comes from. Although chronic lymphocytic leukemia and lymphoma have similar symptoms and progress in a similar way, the biggest difference between them is that the first starts initially in the bone marrow while the second starts in the lymph nodes and nearby tissue. Nonetheless, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and lymphoma can spread to other organs and affect the immune system greatly, which is why a timely diagnosis and treatment are vital.

Overall, chronic lymphocytic leukemia develops more slowly than the acute type and it also has less adverse factors. It can take months or even years for chronic lymphocytic leukemia to manifest itself, but this type of lymphocytic leukemia can at any time become acute.

Although the exact cause of chronic lymphocytic leukemia is not known, genetic mutations and exposure to radiation are believed to play a vital role. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is more common in adults.

Symptoms

  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Swelling of the lymph nodes
  • Pain in the bones
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Frequent colds and infections, due to weakened immune system
  • Loss of appetite
  • Dizziness

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination, the doctor will examine the lymph nodes to check whether they are enlarged. The patient will be asked if they have recently lost a lot of weight or have experienced unexplained weakness.
  • A blood test is primarily used to count the amount of lymphocytes in the blood, which is usually very high in people with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
  • A bone marrow biopsy can be performed, allowing doctors to examine a sample of the patient’s bone marrow under the microscope. This can determine whether the patient has chronic lymphocytic leukemia or not and, if so, at what stage the cancer is.

Treatment

  • Chemotherapy and immunotherapy. Chemotherapy kills the cancerous cells, to stop them progressing. The second part of this treatment option, immunotherapy, helps patient's immune system in recognizing tumor cells and producing cytotoxic substances.
  • A stem cell transplantation is a complex surgical procedure, whereby the patient receives new stem cells that renew the normal production of white and red blood cells and platelets in the blood. These cells may either be taken from the patient before chemotherapy or they may be taken from a donor. Donors need to have similar lymphocytes to the patient. Relatives are most likely to fit best.
