Overview
Chronic lymphoid leukemia (CLL) is a kind of cancer of the bone marrow. In this medical condition, the bone marrow produces many white blood cells or lymphocytes. The condition results in the generation of the ‘B cell lymphocytes’ in lymph nodes, bone marrow, and blood. These B cell lymphocytes malfunction and overpower the healthy ‘blood cells’. The disease affects people over 50 years of age. Males are more prone to develop the disease. The risk factors of the disease include a family history of CLL, exposure to the insecticides and herbicides, age, etc.
Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia Symptoms
Many of the people who suffer from chronic lymphoid leukemia do not show any symptoms. Those who develop the symptoms and signs show the following:

Painless and enlarged lymph nodes
Fatigue
Frequent infections
Pain in the left upper part of the abdomen that could be caused by the enlarged spleen.
Night Sweats
Fever
Weight loss

Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia Causes
Something causes the genetic mutation of the DNA of the blood-generating cells. As a result of the mutation, the blood cells produce infective and abnormal lymphocytes. The abnormal lymphocyte multiplies and accumulates in various organs and in the blood and brings about further complications. They even interfere with the production of healthy blood cells.
Diseases Associated with Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia
Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia (CLL) can lead to several complications if not treated.

Recurring Infections: People suffering from chronic lymphoid leukemia (CLL) can experience recurring infections of the lower and the upper respiratory tract.

Ritcher’s Syndrome: Some people suffering from chronic lymphoid leukemia can develop a severe type of cancer known as large diffuse B-cell lymphoma. Doctors call this Ritcher’s syndrome.

Enhanced Risk of Development of Cancers: People suffering from chronic lymphoid leukemia are prone to develop the other kinds of cancers such as melanoma and cancer of digestive tract, lung, and skin.
