Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a cancer of the blood in which too many lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, are produced by the bone marrow and by organs of the lymph system. CLL is found almost exclusively in adults. Individuals are often without symptoms and can go for years before treatment is required.
