I have Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (diagnosed in March 2001) and then Dukes 3 Cancer of Colon(diagnosed in June 2001). There is apparently a connection between these two conditions in that the leukaemia sufferers have a higher than average chance of developing colon or lung cancer in later life.I say this for info. as it does not seem to be widely known. Is there anyone else in a similar position out there. If so, I would like to compare notes. vcavanagh.
