Leukemia is a blood disorder commonly known as blood cancer. There are two types of leukemias namely Acute and Chronic leukemia.
Acute leukemia usually has bleeding manifestations while chronic leukemia rarely has bleeding manifestations.
Chronic leukemia is usually seen above 40 years and acute leukemia below 40 years. Chronic leukemia could have multiple lymph nodes enlargement and also spleen enlargement.
