While we welcome your questions for Ask the Doctor, questions should be of general interest and not require a long explanation or detailed review of the medical history. They should be informational more than prescriptive. Please try to restrict yourself to one question a month if possible.
For more complex personal questions, consider using our CLL Society Expert Access™ (https://cllsociety.org/cll-society-expert-access/) that offers free access using a HIPAA compliant video platform after the doctor has had a chance to review your medical records.
CLL Society content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment or to replace your relationship with a physician. The treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and other related cancers is highly individualized. You are strongly encouraged to speak with your physician regarding the information that you learn and how it may pertain to your unique medical situation. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the CLL Society website.
