Chronic leukaemia

Chronic leukaemia is a type of blood cancer or haematological cancer. It is a rare cancer that is more common in people aged 50 years and over.

The two main types of chronic leukaemia are:

  • chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML)
  • chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL).
The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
