Were you looking for information about Leukemia? Luekemia is a common misspelling of leukemia.
Leukemia is a type of cancer that often starts in the bone marrow. In people with this disease, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells (leukemia cells) that crowd out normal white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Common symptoms of leukemia include fevers or night sweats, frequent infections, headache, and swollen lymph nodes. Treatment, which may involve surgery, chemotherapy, or other therapies, varies based on the type of leukemia a person has.
