Leukemia Treatment

Approximate Cost : $6000 -$9000 Duration : 14-21 Days

Leukemia is cancer that starts in the tissue that forms blood. In a person with leukemia, the bone marrow makes abnormal white blood cells. The abnormal cells are leukemia cells. Unlike normal blood cells, leukemia cells don't die when they should. They may crowd out normal white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. This makes it hard for normal blood cells to do their work.

Diagnosis of Leukemia

Physical Exam : The Doctor checks for swollen lymph nodes, spleen, or liver.

Blood Tests : The lab does a complete blood count to check the number of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Leukemia causes a very high level of white blood cells. It may also cause low levels of platelets and hemoglobin, which is found inside red blood cells.

Biopsy : The Doctor removes tissue to look for cancer cells. A biopsy is the only sure way to know whether leukemia has infected other organs.Before the sample is taken, local anesthesia is used to numb the area.

Bone Marrow Aspiration : The Doctor uses a thick, hollow needle to remove samples of bone marrow.

Bone Marrow Biopsy : The Doctor uses a very thick, hollow needle to remove a small piece of bone and bone marrow.
Cytogenetics : The Lab looks at the chromosomes of cells from samplesof blood, bone marrow, or lymph nodes. If abnormal chromosomes are found, the test can show what type of leukemia you have.

Spinal Tap : Your Doctor may remove some of the cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that fills the spaces in and around the brain and spinal cord). The doctor uses a long, thin needle to remove fluid from the lower spine. The lab checks the fluid for leukemia cells or other signs of problems.

Chest X-Ray : An X-Ray can show swollen lymph nodes or other signs of disease in your chest.

Treatment of Leukemia


Chemotherapy : Chemotherapy may be given as pills or by injection. Chemotherapy drugs interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread, but they also damage healthy cells. Although healthy cells can recover over time, you may experience side effects from your treatment like nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, fatigue, hair loss and an increased risk of infection.

Radiation therapy : It uses high doses of radiation, such as X-rays, to destroy cancer cells. Radiation is usually given from a machine outside the body that directs radiation to the cancer (external radiation). Radiation is also used to treat acute leukemia that has spread to the brain and spinal cord.

Stem Cell Transplant : Some people with leukemia receive a stem cell transplant. A stem cell transplant allows you to be treated with high doses of drugs, radiation, or both. The high doses destroy both leukemia cells and normal blood cells in the bone marrow. Before high-dose chemotherapy is given, stem cells will be taken from you or from a donor whose bone marrow is a close match to your own. Soon after the chemotherapy treatment, the stem cells are put back into your blood. Within a few weeks, the new stem cells will start to make blood cells.

Biological Therapy : Biological therapy uses your immune system to fight cancer or to help control side effects of other cancer treatments. Natural body substances or drugs made from natural body substances are used to boost the body’s own defences against illness.

Targeted Therapy : Targeted therapies use drugs that attack specific types of cancer cells without damaging healthy cells. Cancer growth inhibitors are a type of targeted therapy.
