Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (All) at BMCHRC

Welcome to Bhagwan Mahaveer Cancer Hospital & Research Centre (BMCHRC), a beacon of hope and healing for individuals confronting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (All). Our institution stands as a pillar of comprehensive care, where cutting-edge treatments merge with compassionate support to guide patients towards optimal health outcomes.

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) is a type of blood cancer that originates in the bone marrow, where blood cells are produced. In ALL, there is a rapid proliferation of immature lymphocytes, known as lymphoblasts, which accumulate in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells. This leads to a decrease in the production of healthy white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets, resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, frequent infections, and easy bruising or bleeding.

Causes and Risk Factors

While the exact cause of ALL is unknown, several risk factors have been identified. These include genetic predisposition, exposure to ionizing radiation, certain genetic disorders such as Down syndrome, and exposure to certain chemicals like benzene. Additionally, there may be some association with viral infections during childhood.

Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of ALL can vary depending on factors such as age, overall health, and the extent of the disease. Common symptoms include persistent fatigue, weakness, fever, frequent infections, easy bruising or bleeding, bone pain, swollen lymph nodes, and unexplained weight loss. It's essential to recognize these symptoms and seek medical attention promptly for proper diagnosis and treatment.



Diagnosing ALL involves a series of tests to evaluate blood cell counts, examine the bone marrow for the presence of abnormal cells, and assess the extent of the disease. These tests may include blood tests, bone marrow aspiration and biopsy, and imaging studies such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. Additionally, genetic testing may be performed to identify specific genetic mutations associated with ALL.


Treatment Options

Treatment for ALL typically involves a combination of chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy, and stem cell transplantation. The specific treatment approach depends on factors such as the patient's age, overall health, subtype of ALL, and response to initial therapy. The goal of treatment is to induce remission, eliminate leukemia cells, and prevent relapse while minimizing side effects.
