Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a type of leukaemia observed in the bone marrow. It is the most prevalent form of adult leukaemia which starts in the bone marrow and moves into the blood. This type of cancer can spread to other parts of the body like the liver, central nervous system and spleen, which leads to the development of a considerable amount of abnormal blood cells. This condition affects a particular set of white blood cells called myeloid cells.
Acute myeloid leukaemia can originate from cells that might transform into white blood cells. It can also develop in other blood-forming cells. When affected by this disease, the myeloid cell can develop into white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.
A person requires immediate medical assistance if they observe the following acute myeloid leukaemia symptoms:
The immediate acute myeloid leukaemia symptoms may be similar to those of common flu. However, if left untreated, the symptoms may worsen. Hence, it is essential to contact a physician to start the treatment as soon as possible.
If you are already undergoing cancer therapy, discussing the acute myeloid leukaemia symptoms with the doctor is also essential. The AML categorization PCR test available at Apollo 24|7 is ideal for diagnosing the cytogenetic abnormalities within the myeloid cells.
An abnormal clone might indicate the presence of multiple subtypes of AML. The treatment procedure will depend upon the subtype. Since all the complications in your blood cells occur in the bone marrow, your doctor might collect the bone marrow sample. This collection can happen through a bone marrow aspiration or a bone marrow biopsy process. After collecting the sample, the doctor will send it to the lab, where a pathologist will examine it. The next treatment steps will depend upon the subtype of AML.
To prevent acute myeloid leukaemia symptoms, you need to be mindful of the risk factors:
AML cancer is more common in males than in females. While there are no straightforward ways of preventing this blood cancer, you can take certain measures to reduce the symptoms. You can start by quitting smoking tobacco. You must also stop exposing yourself to chemicals like benzene.
