Understanding the Stages of CLL
The stages of CLL are used to describe how far along your disease is. Note that risk is the likelihood that the CLL may advance and become more serious.
Ask your doctor or nurse to tell you the stage and risk of your CLL. Then, discuss what it may mean for you. Also, learn more in the table below.
|CLL stage/risk||How far along your disease is|
|Stage 0: Low risk||
|Stage 1: Intermediate risk||
|Stage 2: Intermediate risk||
|Stage 3: High risk||
|Stage 4: High risk||
This information does not take the place of talking with your doctor. Discuss with your doctor any questions you have about your medical condition or your treatment.
