This is a type of cancer that originates in certain blood-forming cells of the bone marrow. Bone marrow is a tissue found in the hollow spaces in the interior of the bone. Usually, men are more affected than women from this disease. Although it can occur at any age but mostly it’s common after the age of 50.

Symptoms:

  • Anemia
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unexplained bleeding
  • Repeated infections
  • Discomfort under the ribs on the left side
  • Excessive sweating
  • Weight loss

Treatment:

  • Chronic phase – In this phase oncologists generally prescribes Imatinib (Gleevec), Nilotinib (Tasigna) or Dasatinib (Sprycel).
  • Accelerated phase – In this phase, if patients don’t feel any comfort then they are recommended treatment with Imatinib (often at higher doses than used for chronic phase CML). For Imatinib, the dosage is 400 mg per day. But if it is not working well then the dose may be increased on the recommendation of Oncologist.click here
