Acute lymphocytic leukemia can occur in adults, but it is the most common type of cancer in children.

Overview

After a diagnosis, our team will focus on developing the best treatment approach. We will create an individualized chemotherapy program, which may include radiation to eliminate any remaining leukemia cells and other therapies to prevent them from reforming. We also may use long-term chemotherapy to reduce or eradicate abnormal blood cells, which has proved successful in past cases.
