In brief: 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.
