How is Leukimia Diagnose Bibliography By: Yenifer Ponce Leukimia What is Leukemia? -Leukemia is cancer of the blood cells. It starts in the bone marrow, the soft tissue inside most bones. Bone marrow is where blood cells are made.
-When you have leukemia, the bone marrow starts to make a lot of abnormal white blood cells, called leukemia cells. They don't do the work of normal white blood cells, they grow faster than normal cells, and they don't stop growing when they should.
-Over time, leukemia cells can crowd out the normal blood cells. This can lead to serious problems such as anemia, bleeding, and infections. Leukemia cells can also spread to the lymph nodes or other organs and cause swelling or pain. "Leukemia - Symptoms, Types, Causes, Diagnoisis and Treatment Options for Leukemia." WebMD. 07 Oct. 2010.
