Thanks for your query.

The term "chronic" in chronic lymphocytic leukemia comes from the fact that it typically progresses more slowly than other types of leukemia and symptoms usually develop slowly over time. Many cases of chronic lymphocytic leukemia are detected by blood tests done in people for other reasons or who do not have any symptoms. Sometimes symptoms occur that may be caused by chronic lymphocytic leukemia or by other conditions.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.
