Statistics About Leukemia - Chronic Myeloid (CML)

Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chance of getting leukemia, of surviving for a certain time period, or of being cured. However, statistics show what happens to large groups of people. Because no 2 people are alike, statistics can't be used to predict what will happen to any 1 person.

These are statistics from the American Cancer Society about chronic myeloid leukemia (CML):

  • About 5,900 new cases of CML will be diagnosed in 2013.

  • Of all people with CML, about 610 people will die of CML this year.

  • Of all the CML cases, nearly all are in adults. Children rarely have CML.

  • The average age of a person with CML at the time of diagnosis is about 65.
