I'm not sure on this type of leukemia. My brother had (is in remission) mds, a type of leukemia. I just wish you the best. Sorry I don't have any info on it specifically. I personally would go get a second or third opinion.
That is right from what I know. I am NOT medically educated, but had aml, so I have researched the other types. From what I have read in the past, cll, it depends on how aggressive it is. If it is slow or not growing at all, treatment may not be necessary at diagnosis.
Here is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on cll. Its just a broad over view, but it confirms what I just said
Your doctor may be right, as is Midnight above. CLL frequently does not require therapy initially. Indications for treatment include rapidly rising lymphocyte counts, bulky or rapidly enlarging lymph nodes, hemolytic anemia or immune thrombocytopenia, liver or spleen enlargement, or B symptoms (fevers, sweats, weight loss). Since the disease is not curable, watching for as long as possible is the norm. It generally responds well to treatment. If you are unsure, get a second opinion.
Leukemia — Comprehensive overview covers symptoms, causes, risk factors, treatment of this blood-related cancer.
