Getting the Facts

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) are B-cell malignancies. CLL and SLL are essentially the same disease, with slightly different manifestations. CLL tends to be an indolent (slow-growing) cancer. However, over time, it can progress to a more aggressive type of lymphoma. Approximately 15,000 new cases of CLL are diagnosed annually.

Recent research into chronic lymphocytic leukemia has led to significant advancements in the understanding of the disease. Research continues on multiple fronts to develop better treatments for patients. We hope you will find the information presented here useful in understanding your disease and discussing it with your healthcare team.
