Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 LEUKEMIA Leukemia is cancer that originates in blood-forming tissue. The disease is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of blood cells, usually white blood cells (leukocytes), in the bone marrow. White blood cells are a fundamental component of the body's immune response. The leukemia cells crowd out and replace normal blood and marrow cells. Stats: HPV by the Numbers 14,100,000 Number of New Cases and Deaths per 100,000: The number of new cases of leukemia was 13.0 per 100,000 men and women per year. The number of deaths was 7.0 per 100,000 men and women per year. These rates are age-adjusted and based on 2007-2011 cases and deaths. Number of people that contract HPV every year 79 million Number of women in the US with HPV $1.7 Billion Annual medical costs associated with HPV-related treatmentin the US. 12,000cervial cancer 2,800anal cancer 1,700neck/throat cancers 500vaginal cancer 2,100vulvar cancer 6,700neck/throat cancers 1,500anal cancer 600penial cancer HPV 360,000 cases of gential warts every year Created by SoRe Clothing as part of SoRe S.E.X..

Or other changes in the cells that have yet to be fully understood could contribute to leukemia.Certain abnormalities cause the cell to grow and divide more rapidly and to continue living when normal cells would die. Over time, these abnormal cells can crowd out healthy blood cells in the bone marrow, leading to fewer healthy blood cells and causing the signs and symptoms of leukemia. There are an estimated 310,046 people living with, orin remission from, leukemia in the US. In 2014, 52,380 people are expected to be diagnosedwith leukemia. Approximately 33 percent more males are living with leukemia than females.More males than females are diagnosed with leukemia and die of leukemia. In 2014, 24,090 people are expected to die fromleukemia. Certain abnormalities cause the cell to grow and divide more rapidly and to continue living when normal cells would die. Over time, these abnormal cells can crowd out healthy blood cells in the bone marrow, leading to fewer healthy blood cells and causing the signs and symptoms of Causes of Cancer-Previous chemotherapy or radiation therapy.-exposure to high doses of radiation or to benzene (found in unleaded gasoline, tobacco smoke, chemical production facilities)-Family history.
