Small lymphocytic lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia?


Small lymphocytic lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia?
What are the differences between these two diseases? Do they always occur simultaneously? Why are they always combined like SLL/CLL, are they the same disease?
Include details as much as you can please.
Thank You!

They are the same disease. If it is found in the lymph nodes first ie detected clinically by a swollen lymph node and a biopsy is done then it is SLL.
If it was detected by a blood test first and testing done on the blood then it is in leukemic phase thus the name leukemia and called CLL.
It eventually is found in both the lymph nodes and in the blood.
