Treatment approaches vary, depending on the type of leukemia, the patient's age and overall health status, and whether the disease has affected the brain. In some cases, a wait-and-watch approach may be appropriate for chronic leukemia.

The most commonly used treatment is chemotherapy. At times, other treatments may be used in combination with chemotherapy, such as a biologic therapy to enhance the body's immune response to the cancer. Targeted therapies, precision medicines and radiation may also be used with chemotherapy. For some patients, stem cell transplantation will be needed.
