Preventive Measures

While it may not be possible to prevent AML in all cases, there are certain preventive measures that individuals can take to reduce their risk of developing this disease. Avoiding exposure to known carcinogens, such as benzene and high doses of radiation, is important in minimizing the risk of AML. Additionally, individuals with a family history of genetic conditions that are associated with an increased risk of AML should discuss their concerns with a healthcare provider and consider genetic counseling. 

It is also important for individuals who have undergone previous treatments with chemotherapy or radiation therapy to be aware of the potential risk of developing AML and to discuss this with their healthcare provider.
