How long can someone in their early 40s with early chronic lymphocytic leukemia live?

It depends

Cll
This often is a disease that has a very long survival. There are ways to predict survival such as extent of disease and markers on the cells, such as ZAP-70. I would review these with your doctor to get the details for your case

How long can someone in there early 40s with chronic lymphocytic leukemia live? Another 20 years?

Possible, but varies

Hand
The prognosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) depends on factors such as the genetics of the CLL and the stage among other things. With good prognostic signs some patients with CLL can have an average survival of at least 10 years and many will live for 20 or more years. On the other hand the disease can be more aggressive with adverse indicators.

Dr. Dragos Luca answered:

For how long do kids diagnosed with jmml leukemia typically live?

It depends...

Children
Hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) appears to be the most effective treatment for JMML and can cure about half the patients. If left untreated, JMML is rapidly fatal with a median survival time of approximately 1 year the absence of HSCT. Low platelet count, age above 2 years at diagnosis, and high hemoglobin F are negative prognostic factors.

Leukemia
It depends on the biology /prgnostic factors of the CLL. In majority cases, CLL is an indolent disease/slowly progressing disease and patients will live for many years with the disease. However there are certain biology of CLL that are behaving more agressively and requiring teatment usually earlier. Discuss in detail with your hematologist/oncologist.

Dr. Dragos Luca answered:

Can you tell me how long can leukemia go unnoticed (before you end up in a hospital for symptoms)?

Varies

Open-uri20130417-14171-1vyykbt
The interval from the disease occurrence to noticeable symptoms can vary widely function of the type of leukemia. For example, in cases of acute leukemia, this interval can be very short (days or weeks), whereas in cases of chronic leukemia this interval may be as long as many years. If a concern for leukemia exists, consultation with the primary care physician or a hematologist is recommended.
