For normal grow of cell. it needs healthy genome. but in some cases error can be occur in the DNA cells. When  the error build up. some cells start growing in uncontrolled way.  which causes lymphoma or leukaemia. Error in the cell known as lymphoblasts cause acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

This is the most common form of leukaemia in children. these cancer comes with faulty  blood cell. They don’t form solid lump. but flow through  the blood vessel. So doctor cannot remove with surgery because all cancer  cell do not form lump.
Doctor uses Chemotherapy  treatment or radiation. Immune system cannot attack the leukaemia or lymphoma.   Bone marrow transplant to replace old corrupted immune.

The success chance is 50 to 60 %. Many time they have to bone marrow transplant.
for that you have to admit the patients 1 months separate.
In case of acute lymphocytic leukaemia (ALL) treatment is more successful than  AML. But long process.  The treatment of ALL goes up to 2 years but at first 15 to 20 days.  At first strong medicine given so keep in the hospital.   After 1 month doctor check the bone marrow to check the infection.  If the response is positive.
