Leukemia Staging: There are many different types of leukemia. Acute leukemias (myeloid or lymphoblastic) do not have a staging system. It is either in remission or not in remission. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia does have different stages and the need for therapy is based on a number of factors. Chronic myeloid leukemia is usually diagnosed in chronic phase and is very treatable.
