Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

Leukemia is cancer of the body's blood-forming tissues, and is of various types. Some types are more common in children and some in adults. Therefore the response to treatment, the survival rate, and the prognosis depends on the type of leukemia. Leukemia can cause death, and between 2008 and 2012, it is estimated that leukemia was the fifth most common cause of cancer deaths in men and the sixth most common in women in the US.

Please ask if you have more questions regarding leukemia. If satisfied with the answer the please click 5 stars above to give a positive rating.
