Can you tell me what chronic lymphocytic leukemia (cll) is?

See below... Cll stands for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a form of blood cancer. Cll is usually not an aggressive form of leukemia and has a relatively good prognosis overall. Many patients are asymptomatic for a long period of time (years) and do not need any form of therapy unless there are symptoms or adverse prognostic factors.
CLL. Cll is an indolent (slow-growing) cancer in which too many immature lymphocytes (white blood cells) are found mostly in the blood and bone marrow and lymph glands . Watchful waiting is majority done until any indication present to start treatment. However, there is subtype of cll which behaves more agressively and requires treatment to be started earlier.
