Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Oftentimes: Sometimes chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) accelerates or turns to blast crisis (acute leukemia). Rarely chronic lymphoid leukemia transforms to more aggressive version as well.

Older...: For all, children rarely get leukemia but this is the type they usually get. For adults, AML is the most common acute type and its incidence increases with age. The chronic leukemias also increase risk with age.

Not likely: The agent has been used safely at varying doses for decades. Typically a very very well tolerated agent, though rarely some patients have ulcerating skin lesions from it. It can cause very low blood counts, but in terms of actually damaging the cells to cause leukemia by itself most people do not feel this is the case.
