Blood Cancer (Leukemia) - Treatment Overview
The goal of treatment for Blood Cancer (Leukemia) is to destroy the leukemia cells and allow normal cells to form in your bone marrow. Treatment decisions are based on the type and subtype of leukemia you have, its stage, and your age and general health. ........
Treatment if acute Blood Cancer (Leukemia) gets worse
Sometimes leukemia gets worse in spite of treatments. Sometimes it gets better, or "goes into remission." Sometimes it comes back, or "relapses." Even when that happens, there are several treatments that may help to cure the leukemia or help you live longer:
Clinical trials : -People who have Blood Cancer (Leukemia) may enter a research program when they first start treatment or if the leukemia is not getting better........
Treatment of chronic Blood Cancer (Leukemia)
Unlike acute Blood Cancer (Leukemia), chronic leukemia is not always treated right away. It usually gets worse more slowly than acute leukemia. This is especially true for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

If you have a relapse after a bone marrow transplant, a transfusion of more of your donor's white blood cells may put you back into remission.....
If leukemia gets worse, you may want to think about focusing on palliative care for your treatment. Palliative care is a kind of care for people who have illnesses that do not go away and often get worse over time. It is different from treatment to cure your illness, called curative treatment. Palliative care focuses on improving your quality of life-not just in your body, but also in your mind and spirit.......
What to think about
When leukemia has been in remission for a long time, the word "cure" is often used. Your doctor may use the term "remission" instead of "cure" when talking about the effectiveness of your treatment.
