In brief: Very briefly

Leukemia is a form of blood and bone marrow cancer.
Some forms can be cured and some not. The outcome depends heavily on the type of leukemia, age of the patient, previous state of health, genetic abnormalities, and many other factors. The initial signs and symptoms may be very nonspecific and therefore, if a concern for leukemia exists, consultation with a physician is recommended.
