Leukaemia in medical terms is a cancer of blood marrow, caused by the abnormal increase in blood cells in a particular organism. In fact, leukaemia has various forms and is a group of diseases that are comprised in the group of haematological neoplasm. In real life leukaemia means that the life of an individual is transformed into the constant and tiring fight with nature and surroundings. The person with the leukaemia diagnosis is extremely vulnerable to any type of bacterial viruses. What can cause cough, sneezing or head ache for a healthy person, can kill an individual suffering from leukaemia. Treatment of leukaemia cases is generally chemical.
Leukaemia is one of the most dangerous diseases of nowadays and a lot of research studies on causes and case control of this disease have been performed during the last years. No one knows for sure, what causes this disease. Some believe that environmental factors play their role in the development of leukaemia, others blame abnormal chromosome. This paper will add value to the previous researches by providing additional information and practical knowledge by examining the childhood leukaemia. The objective is to determine the major risk factors of leukaemia cases, based on the historical analysis of the cases and drawing parallels between location, age, genetics and other factors that potentially can contribute or even cause the disease.
This research will provide the findings on the relation of the leukaemia cases and external factor, as well as share a set of recommendations on the ways of controlling predicting and early stage diagnosis of this disease. This will either support previous findings on the causes of leukaemia or provide scientists with additional information that will, possibly, contribute towards leukaemia studies.
