Factors that may raise your risk of developing some types of Leukemia Cancer include:

  • Previous cancer treatment. People who’ve had certain types of chemotherapy and radiation therapy for other cancers have an increased risk of developing certain types of Leukemia Cancer.
  • Genetic disorders. Genetic abnormalities look to play a role in the development of this disease. Certain genetic disorders such as Down syndrome are linked with an increased risk of this disease .
  • Exposure to certain chemicals. Exposure to certain chemicals such as benzene which is found in gasoline and is used by the chemical industry  also is linked to an increased risk of some kinds of this disease.
  • Smoking. Smoking cigarettes increases the risk of acute myelogenous Leukemia Cancer.
  • Family history of Leukemia Cancer. If members of your family have been diagnosed with this your risk for the disease may be increased.

Scientists don’t understand the exact causes of Leukemia . It seems to develop from a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

How Leukemia Cancer Forms

In general, lt this disease is thought to occur when some blood cells acquire mutations in their DNA — the instructions inside each cell that guide its action. There may be other changes in the cells that have yet to be fully understood could contribute to this disease .Certain abnormalities cause the cell to grow and divide more rapidly and to continue living when normal cells would die. Over time, these abnormal cells can crowd out healthy blood cells in the bone marrow, leading to fewer healthy white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets, causing the signs and symptoms of this disease.

How Leukemia Cancer is Classified

Doctors classify this disease based on its speed of progression and the type of cells involved. The first type of classification is by how fast this disease progresses: Parts of the immune system

  • Chronic Leukemia Cancer. There are many types of chronic leukemias. Some produce too many cells and some cause too few cells to be produced. Chronic Leukemia Cancer involves more mature blood cells. These blood cells replicate or accumulate more slowly and can function normally for a period of time.
  • Some forms of chronic Leukemia Cancer initially produce no early symptoms and can go unnoticed or undiagnosed for years.
  • Acute leukemia. In acute Leukemia Cancer, the abnormal blood cells are immature blood cells (blasts). They can’t carry out their normal functions, and they multiply rapidly, so the disease worsens quickly. this disease requires aggressive, timely treatment.
