Statistics About Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chances of getting leukemia, of surviving a certain period of time, or of being cured. However, statistics show what happens to large groups of people. Because no two people are alike, statistics can't be used to predict exactly what will happen to a particular person. It is important to discuss your individual case with your doctor. 

These are some statistics from the American Cancer Society about CLL in the United States:

  • About 16,060 people will be told they have CLL in 2012.

  • The average age of people with CLL is around 72. It is rarely seen in people younger than age 40.

  • About 4,580 people will die of CLL this year.
