Cancer of WBC: CML is a chronic leukemia- cancer of the white blood cells. The bad news is that you have cancer. The good news is that you can control-perhaps to "cure" this leukemia with pill that you take at daily basis. The prognosis majority is very good. Only for a few cases-that people need bone marrow transplantation for cml- nowadays. For further detail info- read at www.Nccn.Com for patient resource.
