What is Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia?

Definition of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia

Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), also called acute lymphoblastic leukemia, is a type of cancer that starts from white blood cells in the bone marrow (the soft inner part of the bones) called lymphocytes. In most cases it quickly moves into the blood. It can then spread to other parts of the body including the lymph nodes, liver, spleen, central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), and testes. The Social Security Administration will automatically consider you disabled for 2 ½ years from the time of your initial diagnosis.
