White blood cells
White blood cells is one of the main components of blood along with blood red blood cells and platelets, and function of the production of anti-defense antibodies from the body when entering foreign objects to it, as it protects the human pellets from infectious diseases, and consists of a stem cell found in the bone marrow.
The number of white blood cells in cancer patients
The number of white blood cells ranges between 4000-11.000 cell in each Maekerolter of blood, ie, accounting for 1% of the blood, and when entering a foreign object, this number rises slightly to defend the body, but there are cases in which rises this number higher than normal so far the doctor begins search for reasons to make sure no injury to person with leukemia, namely leukemia (leukemia).
Blood cancer or leukemia is a malignant disease that occurs as a result of the production of pellets Aldam white survival is mature, with growth at a certain point stops, then these cells begin immature growing, a huge amount, to drown out the number on the number of blood cells red, begins this disease in the bone of any marrow where it made up the white cells before moving to the blood.
Symptoms of leukemia
The diagnosis of the disease by taking a biopsy of the bone tissue in the patient after noting the high white blood cells are abnormal when the work of a blood test, and the disease each disease as a number of symptoms including:
- Incidence of bleeding.
- Bruises in different parts of the body.
- Feeling very tired.
- High temperature.
- Pick up the infection quickly.
The causes of leukemia
This type of cancer unknown reason, but there are factors that may contribute to the incidence of leukemia, such as:
- Exposure to radiation.
- Use of chemicals frequently.
- Hereditary reasons.
- Genetic reasons, so we find that people with Down syndrome may be exposed to leukemia.
Types of leukemia
- Chronic myeloid leukemia.
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
- Acute myeloid leukemia.
- Acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Treatment of leukemia
It is one of the most difficult types of cancer; Because it affects the blood is difficult to control, as other types of cancer affects a member of the body and is excised and the patient may fully recover from it, and leukemia, the treatment requires more than one way, where the use of painkillers, planting Nkhag bone, may be used chemotherapy and radiation therapy. This depending on the type of cancer, many developed countries have succeeded in treating the disease completely, especially in children under the age of 15 years, where some countries were able to find a cure for them, because this type of cancer depends on the age of the patient. Despite the difficulty of treating the disease of adults, but it can control and keep the patient alive for five years, and there are cases where the patient was able to recover completely.
