Acute myelogenous leukemia, the most common type of blood and bone marrow cancers in adults, can be treated in several ways.

Overview

Our treatment plan will depend on the cancer’s progression, your age, overall health and other factors. We may recommend chemotherapy treatment, but you also may benefit from radiation and anti-cancer drugs that target just the cancer without damaging healthy cells. We also may use antibiotics to treat infections and blood transfusions to control bleeding and relieve fatigue.
