Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Treatment - As with any type of leukemia, treatment options for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) vary based on several factors, such as the cancer stage, blood counts, and the patient's overall health. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia tends to develop over a long period of time, without causing symptoms for years. Some patients decide to "watch and wait" (watchful waiting) without receiving treatment until symptoms appear or change. If a person chooses to receive treatment, some common chronic lymphocytic leukemia treatment options include the following: radiation therapy, chemotherapy, surgery, monoclonal antibody therapy, and chemotherapy with stem cell transplant.
