Getting the Facts
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) are B-cell malignancies. CLL and SLL are essentially the same disease, with slightly different manifestations. CLL tends to be an indolent (slow-growing) cancer. However, over time, it can progress to a more aggressive type of lymphoma. Approximately 15,000 new cases of CLL are diagnosed annually.
