Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) prognosis
After you’ve been diagnosed with ALL, you may want to know more about your prognosis − what's likely to happen in the future.
Your prognosis is individual to you, and there are several things that can affect it. The main ones your healthcare team will look at are:
- your age and general health − ALL is typically easier to treat in younger people
- the type of ALL you have
- the result of your minimal residual disease (MRD) test after remission induction treatment.
Ask your healthcare team about your prognosis
We have general information about things that might affect your prognosis, but everyone is different. If you want to know about your individual prognosis, your healthcare team are the best people to ask. They know you and your individual situation.
