Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL): It accounts for about 80% of the blood cancer and is common among children. It starts slowly but escalates suddenly. The affected cells can spread into the central nervous system and affect the spinal cord, and the brain eventually.
Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML): AML is always called acute myelogenous and is common in adults than in children. Environmental factors can aggravate the symptoms. Apart from Chemotherapy, which is the main treatment, a bone marrow transplant may also be suggested.
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL): The most common type of leukemia in adults it starts in the cells that become the WBCs. The chronic leukemic cells do not mature completely, and they look normal. Unlike the other cells they do not fight infections and tend to survive longer than the normal white blood cells. This cancer takes a very long time to manifest in any kind of symptoms.
