    No, there is little to no evidence that these diseases are inherited. There are genetic components to the diseases and often there are alterations in the DNA but the cause of these changes is unknown and occurs later in life.

    Familial leukemia is rare, but, as is the case with other cancer family syndromes, its study is likely to lead to the identification of genes causative of the far more common, sporadic cases.
