    continual leukemia is a greater slowly coming up leukemia than acute leukemia. you could stay for years after being clinically determined with continual leukemia in case to procure the perfect medical care. Actor Ryan O'Neal replaced into clinically determined with continual leukemia in 2001 and remains working. Acute leukemia is an emergency and demands instant medical care. The 5-year survival cost for adults with acute myelogenous leukemia is approximately 24%. For all different forms of leukemia, the 5-year survival cost stages from approximately fifty 5% to seventy 9%.

    Acute means onset, chronic means it keeps coming back or will always be there, even with treatment.

    Really? You can't Google Leukemia? Go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society website, I'll provide it for you and do your own homework. Honestly, kids today.

    I'll even link you to the Leukemia disease info.

    acute is usually a term that means it's a sudden onset, while chronic means a longer lasting lingering problem
