What is the Difference between Chronic and Acute?

In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge. All articles and interviews are informational only, should never be considered medical advice, and should never be acted on without review with your health care team.

It important to remember that CLL is a chronic cancer, in contrast to acute leukemias that are often very fast moving and aggressive. Our typically slower-growing or more indolent malignancy means we nearly always have time to learn more about our “new normal” and plan our treatment.
