Did you know?
Some risk factors of leukemia are radiation, smoking, benzene (found in cigarette smoke and gasoline), Down syndrome, and family history.
Some symptoms of leukemia are swollen lymph nodes that usually don’t hurt (especially lymph nodes in the neck or armpit), fevers or night sweats, frequent infections, feeling weak or tired, and bleeding and bruising easily.
Though leukemia can develop at any age, it is most common in people over age 60.
