Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) prognosis
After you’ve been diagnosed with CLL, you may want to know more about your prognosis (what may happen in the future).
New treatments for CLL have been introduced in recent years which mean that overall, people with CLL have a better prognosis than previously.
Generally speaking, CLL progresses very slowly and survival can be measured in decades. It might progress more quickly in some people, who may need treating earlier or more aggressively. Your own prognosis is individual to you.
