I really want to know what is myeloid leukemia. Can somebody be kind and explain to me that, please! Yesterday I heard that my neighbor has this illness. I suppose that it’s something really serious and dangerous. I know that leukemia is a cancer of blood cells but what is exactly myeloid leukemia? Thanks!

Acute myeloid leukemia is a cancer of primitive white blood cells in the bone marrow. It progresses rapidly and affects immature blood cells, rather than mature ones. Chronic myeloid leukemia is an uncommon type of cancer of the blood cells. It's considered chronic leukemia because it usually progresses more slowly than acute leukemia, sometimes over the course of years.
