Leukemia is a form of cancer which occurs when there is an excess of abnormal white blood cells in the blood. Under normal conditions, the blood forming cells of the bone marrow produce leukocytes for defense against viruses and bacteria. If the leukocytes are damaged and if they remained untreated they get accumulated in the body. The untreated cells then invade other parts of the body like spleen, liver and central nervous system. The main reasons causing leukemia are smoking, ionizing radiation, prior chemotherapy and Down syndrome.
