Oct. 14, 2008 - PRLog -- Blood has several components like-red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma -and the cells of the blood are produced at the bone marrow. When the cells of the blood grow abnormally, it is called blood cancer or leukaemia. The whole system of production of blood cells is a controlled activity and when cancer occurs in the bone marrow, it affects the process of regulation of cell production. The abnormal growth of the blood cells weakens the body’s defence mechanism. There are two types of blood cancer-acute leukaemia and chronic leukaemia.

Acute leukemia:

Acute leukemia is a type of blood cancer in which the cells develop rapidly. The immature white blood cells gather in and consequently enter the other different parts of the body. Depending on the affection of white blood cell type, in clinical terms acute leukaemia is called either acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) or acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). The symptoms of acute leukaemia are

   Generalized weakness and fatigue (this may be due to anaemia)
   Fever
   Weight loss
   Frequent infections
   Excessive bruising
   Bleeding (of the gums or nose)
   Blood in the urine or stools
   Pain in the bones and joints
   Breathlessness (can be due to anaemia)
   Enlarged lymph glands, liver and/or spleen.

Chronic leukemia:

In chronic leukemia, the white blood cells of cancer develop slowly than acute leukaemia and they gradually could not do their function well. An increased number of lymphocytes, which make up one of the main sub-groups of white cells in the blood, are seen in chronic leukaemia. This blood cancer has a slow process of development of cancer cells. Depending on the affection of white blood cells, chronic leukaemia is called either chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) or chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML). The peak age for CLL is 65 and it is rare in people under the age of 45.
The following signs may oocur due to chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) or chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL):
•   Abdominal discomfort (this could be the result of an enlarged spleen)
•   Infections caused by not having enough healthy white blood cells
•   Fever
•   Night sweats
•   Swollen lymph glands
•   Bone pain
•   Weight loss
•   Headaches and vision problems
•   Tiredness
