What is Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia?

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is a type of cancer of the blood in which the bone marrow makes too many lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell). Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia is one of the few diseases occurring exclusively in adults. This arises from abnormality in mature lymphocytes, which are a normal component of white blood cells resulting in proliferation of mature lymphocytes.

The incidence of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia increases with age and is the commonest blood cancer in the developed countries.
