Expert Video - What is treatment-related AML (or tAML)?
In this video, Dr. Sandra Kurtin explains treatment-related acute myeloid leukemia, or tAML. This type of AML develops in people who previously had cancer treatment with radiation or certain types of chemotherapy. These treatments can damage the cells. You may develop treatment-related AML just two or three years after cancer treatment. Or it may appear as late as 10 years after treatment. The timing depends partly on what type of treatment you had.
