Acute lymphocytic leukemia is the most typical childhood cancer, even though it may also occur in adults. ALL can be a cancer of the blood and bone marrow occurring when abnormal cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. ALL is caused by a rise in white blood cells called lymphocytes. Since it’s an acute, or competitive, type of cancer, it moves quickly. Most types of ALL may be treated with an excellent probability of remission in kids. Adults with ALL do not have as high of a remission speed as kids. In accordance with the American Cancer Society, about 6, 050 new cases of ALL, 3, 450 males and 2, 600 females, were diagnosed in the US in 2012.
