Were you looking for information about Leukemia? Lekima is a common misspelling of leukemia.
Leukemia is a cancer of the white blood cells. In people with this disease, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells that crowd out normal white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets over time. This action makes it difficult for blood to do its work and may cause fatigue, headaches, and other symptoms. Certain people may be at a higher risk for developing leukemia, including those who are exposed to very high levels of radiation, are receiving chemotherapy, or have Down syndrome.
