Leukemia is the most common blood cancer, it affects adults 10 times more often than children, but it is the most common childhood cancer. Leukemia causes the bone marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells, these cells do not die when they should and may crowd normal healthy cells, making healthy cells unable to function. In Acute Leukemia, the leukemic cells cannot do the white blood cells functions and the number of leukemic cells increases rapidly. Acute Leukemia usually worsens quickly. Generally men are more likely to be diagnosed with Leukemia than women. The number of new cases diagnosed each year has remained steady for the past 20 years, while the morality rates have greatly decreased. There are many risk factors that greatly increase the odds of developing leukemia such as smoking, chemical exposure, radiation and certain inherited diseases.
