Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), is the most common type of leukemia (a type of cancer of the white blood cells). CLL affects B cell lymphocytes, which originate in the bone marrow, develop in the lymph nodes, and normally fight infection by producing antibodies. CLL is a disease of adults. Most (>75%) people newly diagnosed with CLL are over the age of 50, and the majority are men. However, in rare cases, it can occur in teenagers and occasionally in children. Some of these may relate to an inherited predisposition. Each year in Australia around 1000 people are diagnosed with CLL, making it the most common type of leukaemia. Generally, CLL is a rare disease, accounting for 0.8% of all cancers diagnosed. Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia is the most common form of adult Leukemia in the United States and the western world
