What the disease of leukaemia is all about?

When the term leukaemia comes to your mind one thing on top of your mind is that it would be a life threatening disease. The need of the hour would be a prompt detection of the disorder. Here the need of the hour would be to maximize the treatment options through medications or therapy. It would be a particular type of cancer in relation to the blood or the bone marrow. The main reason on why it takes place is due to cellular activity being not of order. It does arise due to the various types of blood cells that caused its development in the first place. When this disease develops at a rampant pace it is known as acute and when it is developing at a slow pace it is deemed a chronic version of it.

Till date the direct cause of this disorder is not that clear. Medical science has been a failure in order to establish the correct cause of it. But if you carefully explore things a strong gentic connection with the disorder has been put in place. It does take place on the basis of the genetic disorder that lead to the development of mature blood cells. Coupled with the fact that leukaemia is a hereditary disease and this would mean that it could pass from one generation to the other. Though you can say that there are many factors which contribute to the disease, the exact cause of the disorder still works out to be a major mystery. This is irrespective of the fact that in case of a lot many people it may also arise due to environmental factors. But you cannot pinpoint the exact cause of them as well.  Now let us go through some of the major environment causes behind the occurrence of this disorder:
  • With prolonged exposure to smoking the chances of leukemia does go on to increase at a larger level. Though figures point to the fact that nearly 20 % of all acute cases make it up, but the tragic part is that even non smokers are affected by it. So you can go on to consider it as a cause in itself to be honest.
  • Radiation- If a prolonged exposure to radiation takes place you do go on increase the chances of occurrence of this type of cancer. If you are exposed to radiation it would point to the occurrence of this disorder.
If you carefully analyse things the list of causes in terms of leukemia can go on and on.But apart from these the genetic factors are the prime ones that are responsible for the emergence of this disorder. Though most of them could be corrected, but some of them are present in the genes which makes their correct a very difficult task.

The cost of leulemia treatment in India stands to be the lowest in the world. This is the reason why millions of patients turn to this part of the world for treatment.
