     Statistics

    Leukaemia describes a number of diseases of differing aetiology and clinical course. The four main subtypes are chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), acute lymphocytic leukaemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). The commonest of these (about 40% of all cases) is CLL (National Cancer Registry, 2010a). All leukaemias combined formed the tenth most common cancer in Ireland, accounting for 2.4% of all malignant neoplasms, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, in women and 3.2% in men. The risk of developing leukaemia up to the age of 74 was 1 in 170 for women and 1 in 98 for men and was higher in RoI than in NI. At the end of 2008, 847 women and 1,196 men aged under 65, and 663 women and 924 men aged 65 and over, were alive up to 15 years after their leukaemia diagnosis.
