Hi msreta!

I read your post and the reply of the other person before me who lives in the UK - I'm not going to say that this person is wrong, but my mom had CLL and her oncologist told me that blood cancers are not hereditary. I also don't think they are caused by stress. I believe from what I know that they are from some fluke thing with the cells, or just bad luck.

I'm sorry you are going through this - I hope my reply helps.

take care!
Thanks for the reply...I also read the same thing about this disease not being hereditary. Because no one in my family has ever had this disease that we know of. We mostly have heart disease issues in my family tree..I go back in September for another blood test. Is is possibly that I could test for this disease but no have it. Could stress cause this disease...I know that stress affects your immune system. Thanks for any info you may have..
Hello ~ just wanted to share something with you ...
My sister was diagnosed with CLL, 4 years ago, at age 43. Then our mother was diagnosed with CLL two years later. ~total shock~ It very well could be hereditary.
My sisters is very aggressive and she requires treatment ... our mothers' is not aggressive and she has not required any treatment so far. Just regular checkups with her Dr.
