    According to the American Cancer Society, in 2009 only 22 percent of people with AML had a five-year survival rate. Leukemia is often misdiagnosed. AML can Source:http://www.ehow.com/list_6374295_signs-aml_.html

    Acute Myeloid leukemia is a cancer that develops in the blood of bone marrow. It is the overproduction of white blood cells that interfere with the production of normal blood cells.

    Cancer of any kind is dangerous – there is no such thing as a good cancer! Leukemia takes lives of children and adults every day but at the same time, there are many survivors that are in remission and doing very well! How well a patient does depends on so many different factors including age, cell counts, what type and subtype of leukemia he or she has, the will to fight, and so many other factors!My son E was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumour as a newborn, won his battle, and was recently diagnosed with Secondary Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)! His cancer is most likely a secondary cancer caused by the chemotherapy his first time when he fought Wilms! E somehow passed his screenings he has every 3 months back in October but in the end of November we started to notice he wasnt quite himself, and he was diagnosed December 19th!There are lots of symptoms of leukemia but each individual is different! Some display some symptoms while others display other ones! E had a cold in November that he just couldnt kick! We took him to the doctor and he was given an antibiotic! He got a little better but as soon as he finished the antibiotic he got sick again! He usually has a couple bruises here and there since he is a 2 year old! His walking was greatly affected from one of the drugs in his first chemo cocktail so he trips and falls pretty often! But the bruising he had was more than usual – he bruised at the slightest bump! Thats when we really knew something was wrong and took him to the doctor again! Once he was diagnosed we found out that his spleen and liver were enlarged – also symptoms of leukemia! Due to the extent of enlargement of his spleen, he had it removed after a round of chemotherapy! So far he has had 3 strong doses of chemo, a round of consolidation chemo, hes on his 2nd round of consolidation chemo and hes labeled as being in remission! He still has 3-5 rounds of consolidation chemo left just to make sure all of the cancerous cells are gone then a bone marrow transplant down the road when a donor becomes available!A leukemia diagnosis is absolutely not a death sentence! Its treatable but you have to keep in mind that it does take lives! I know many children and adults that have gone on to live completely normal lives after getting their No Evidence of Disease (NED) status! Sometimes a patient does relapse but it is absolutely possible that he or she can reach remission and eventually NED status!AML has an overall long-term survival rate of 21!3%! Because children (under 15) typically do better, their long-term survival rate is around 55!2%! Between the different subtypes there are different survival rates! Again, every cause is different, every patient is different! The treatment given also has an impact on the survival of the patient – some cases respond to treatment better than others! Certain factors also impact the survival rate! There are some genetic mutations that increase the likelihood of survival and some genetic mutations that greatly decrease the likelihood of survival! Previous chemotherapy and radiation or previous battles with cancer generally lead to a smaller percentage of survivals compared to a first-time diagnosis! We live in Canada so I cant estimate the costs of treatment in India!I hope this helped you out some! If you have any more questions feel free to email me (crazycanuckjyahoo!ca) or IM me (crazycanuckj)!

    AML has several subtypes; treatment and prognosis varies among subtypes. Five -year survival varies from 15–70%, and relapse rate varies from 33-78%,
