Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL): Statistics 

What are statistics?

Statistics are numbers that are used to measure certain things. Some people use statistics to figure out their chances of getting cancer. Or they use them to try to figure out their chance of recovery. Because no two people are alike, statistics can't be used to predict what will happen to one person. The statistics below describe large groups of people. They don't take into account a person's own risk factors. These may include family history, behaviors, or not having cancer screenings. If you have questions, talk with your healthcare provider.
