Introduction to Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. It is a rapidly progressing disease that can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated promptly. AML starts in the bone marrow, where the body produces blood cells. The leukemia cells rapidly multiply and interfere with the production of normal blood cells. 

This can lead to symptoms such as anemia, increased risk of infections, and easy bruising or bleeding. AML can occur in people of any age, but it is more common in older adults. It is important to understand the causes, symptoms, and preventive measures for AML in order to raise awareness and improve outcomes for those affected by this disease.
