In brief: Not so much.

Leukemia is a malignancy of blood and their bone marrow progenitors.
They usually circulate in the blood normally without causing problems to blood flow. If left untreated, however leukemia can lead to extremely high blood counts, to the point where normal blood flow would be impaired.
