What's more dangerous? Acute( fast developing) or chronic(slow developing) for childhood leukemia.?
I was a victim of ALL ( acute lymphocytic leukemia) at age 4, i am now 13, perfectly healthy and i am doing a speech on childhood leukemia and how it was to have it.

I would say fast developing, but that is just me, I am not a medical professional
acute is worse. it can be too late by the time that it is caught. chronic takes a long time for it to become terminal, and people would have had to purposely ignore it for years in order to make it that bad. acute is fast enough that chemo can be too late to make enough of a difference.
im glad that it worked out for you and that you are healthy.
Acute. Without treatment (chemotherapy), patients with acute leukemias die sooner than patients with chronic leukemias. But acute leukemias are generally more responsive to chemotherapy (childhood ALL is at least 80% curable).
