In brief: Depends on stage
For the patient with early stge cll the treatment is only observatio, meaning no therapy.
When the disease stage advances or complications such as infections or low blood counts develop, at that point chemotherapy is started. Type of chemo depends on patient age, activity and can range from oral pills to combination regimens.
