Stages of Chronic T-cell Lymphocytic Leukemia

Generally, staging describes where a cancer is located, if or where it has spread, and whether it affects other parts of the body. Unlike most solid tumours, there is no standard staging system for LGLL, T-PLL, ATLL, or Sezary syndrome. However, doctors still use diagnostic tests, such as those discussed in the Diagnosis section, to evaluate T-cell leukaemia to help decide what kind of treatment is best and predict your prognosis the chance of recovery. Talk to the doctor for details on how your specific type of leukaemia will be evaluated.
