Chronic myelogenous leukemia typically affects older adults. It's caused by a chromosome mutation that occurs spontaneously. Doctors aren't sure what causes the mutation.
Many people don't develop symptoms until later stages and the diagnosis is only made through routine blood work. When symptoms do occur, they include bleeding easily, feeling rundown or tired, weight loss, pale skin, and night sweats.
