What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What is Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia?
Knowing vital information about your disease is the first step toward cancer remission.
Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a rare form of bone marrow cancer. The term "chronic" indicates that this cancer progresses slower than acute forms of leukemia in most cases. As for "myelogenous," it alludes to the type of cells this cancer affects. Chronic myelogenous leukemia causes an abnormal increase in the number of white blood cells, which cannot combat infection the way normal white blood cells can.
This cancer is also known as chronic myeloid leukemia or chronic granulocytic leukemia. Without treatment, CML can lead to alarming consequences, including premature death.
Addressing the Signs of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia
As an authority in providing comprehensive care and new hope, our mission includes reversing the symptoms of chronic myelogenous leukemia.
CML has three phases, and your symptoms will depend on which one you are in. During the chronic phase or the earliest stage, you might not have any symptoms.
During the accelerated phase, the number of abnormal blood cells increases. The symptoms you may encounter include:
- Frequent fevers
- Night sweats
- Bruising easily
- Shortness of breath
- Lack of appetite
- Weight loss
- Swelling or pain in your left side
- Pain in your bones
- Changes in vision
- Ringing in your ears
- Prolonged erections
- Mental confusion
During the blastic phase, leukemia cells begin multiplying and crowding out healthy blood cells and platelets. You may experience severe health issues, such as:
- Skin changes, including bumps and tumors
- Bone pain
- Swollen glands
What Caused Your Cancer?
Currently, what causes chronic myelogenous leukemia is unclear. However, two factors may increase a man or woman’s risk of developing the disease:
- Older age
- Exposure to radiation therapy for certain cancer types
Unlike several other malignant disorders, a mutation that leads to CML is not passed from parent to child. The mutation is thought to be acquired, meaning it may develop after birth.
How Do Doctors Confirm a Cancer Diagnosis?
Early and accurate diagnosis is your best chance at improving your chronic myelogenous leukemia prognosis. Your doctor might order the following tests to detect bone marrow cancer:
- Medical and physical exam
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Bone marrow test
- Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH test)
- Computerized tomography (CT) scan
- Polymerase chain reaction test
After receiving a chronic myelogenous leukemia diagnosis, the next most crucial step is to plan your treatment.
