Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is an illness that you can live with for a long time, as it often progresses very slowly.
If treatment is needed, it’s usually very effective and can keep the leukaemia under control for many years. You will need to have regular check-ups and blood tests.
Let your doctor know as soon as possible if you have any problems or notice any new symptoms that don’t go away within a couple of weeks - you don’t need to wait until your next appointment.
