I was asked this question by someone in a support group. Have any of us seen any research that shows that younger CLL patients typically have a more aggressive version of CLL than their older CLL counterparts? In other words, because the younger CLLers manifested their disease so early do the stats indicate that comparitively they will live shorter lives and perhaps require more aggressive and more frequent treatments? Or is there no tie in between the age that you are diagnosed and the eventual long term outcome of your disease, compared to older patient's typical outcomes and needs for treatments? Thank you.
