Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a variety of cancer where a person’s bone marrow makes too many lymphocytes, which is a type of white blood cell. It’s also possible for leukemia to affect other white blood cells, red blood cells, and blood platelets.
Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) has many other names, but all of them start with the word “acute,” which means the cancer has to potential to spread quickly.

A recent study by the American Journal of Hematology reviewed over 7,000 cases of AML in adults and found a direct correlation to smoking cigarettes. “So, now we know that both AML and lung cancer are linked to smoking,” says Incledon. “We know that smoking has damaging effects on our health and continued research will likely show that other cancers can be linked to smoking.” Gene mutations, exposure to certain chemicals or chemotherapy from other cancer treatments, and various environmental factors are also seen as creating higher risk for developing AML.
