Leukemia Treatment

Is there a cure for leukemia?

A Answers (1)

  • If leukemia is in remission for more than five years after treatment, it is considered cured. There is no guarantee that the disease will not return, or relapse, but the five-year mark is considered a very positive sign. Treatment to prevent such a relapse may be given even if the person is considered cured.
