What are the possibilities of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia relapse post treatment?
possibility of ALL release almost zero
Thanks for your query.
ALL usually doesn't relapse after so many years. But there is small chance of treatment related second cancers like myeloid leukemia, sarcoma, etc.
Some other treatment related complications are heart problems, lung problems or infertility. If no treatment related complications occur, her life span is expected to be normal.
She can surely get married, from medical point of view. But she and her partner should understand all these risks.
Hope this helps.
after 6 years of recovery what are the possibilities of having a treatment related second cancer like myeloid leukemia, sarcoma etc? if it does happen what are the chances of a proper treatment as that of the earlier one
after 10 years relapse free we can say cured
Possibility of second cancers is low, around 1-3% but these are difficult to treat. Not so much chemo sensitive as the primary one.
But apart from those, a normal life span can be expected.
