Hi all gotta question..
My mom has Leukemia, I think it is the CLL...it's the long lasting one. She was diagnosed 9 years ago with it at the age of 59.
She is doing well thank god. No need to go on any meds for it at this time. He blood cell count has been going up every year though.
I was wondering if Leukemia could be hereditary? The thing is my grandmother (my moms mother) dies of Leukemia 1-year after finding out she had it. My Great Grandmother ( my mohters grandmother) also diesd of it within 1 month of finding out. I was actualy 13 when my great grandmother died. Also, my great aunt (my mothers aunt) died of it too!
Is there some sort of gene that we can be carrying regarding this? I am 44 and get blood work actualy done every 2 months due to meds I am on for Fibromyalgia and Arthritic issues, as well as I get my yearly check up with blood work too. The only thing that ever came back funny was a Liver Enzine test, which went back to normal a month laster and a ESR test came back high, but 2 months later was also back to normal.
Has anyone ever heard of this cancer being hereditary?
