Hi

Sorry to hear about your friend.
If it is leukemia then the primary treatment is chemotherapy and if required stem cell transplant. Please follow the recommendations of your oncologist.

DEAR VITHI
it is very nice of you to concern about your friend
1st stage of blood cancer is curable with medicines so not to worry at all
then also keep faith in your oncologist and follow him strictly
in case if he is not responding well with medicines there are other options of
chemotherapy
radiotherapy
stem cell transplant
and many more
so nothing to worry at all
keep faith and be strong
all the best

Hi,
Leukemia are of many types.
Your friend is suffering from first stage leukemia.
Chemotherapy is the first line of treatment.
If relapses are there then stem cell therapy, bonemarrow transplant are the options if the suitable donor is there.
Hope for the best with chemotherapy treatment.
