Chronic myeloid leukemia is actually uncontrolled growth of malign blood cells. It is true that it occurs in people with certain chromosome aberration. There is certain analysis that could be done if you wish to see if your child has that aberration. This illness usually attacks older people, men more commonly. And the patient should expect to have a normal life for a long time.
