Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a type of cancer that begins in the cells of the immune system, specifically the white blood cells called lymphocytes. It is a slow-growing cancer that typically progresses over a period of several years and is characterized by the accumulation of too many white blood cells in the blood and bone marrow. Symptoms of CLL can include fatigue, weakness, weight loss, and enlarged lymph nodes, spleen, or liver. CLL is typically treated with immunotherapy and/or targeted therapy. Chemo is becoming a rare occurrence for treatment.

Although some CLL outcomes will not be great, most with CLL will lead normal life spans.
