Screening for Leukemia
Screening is a way to evaluate people without symptoms to determine if they are at risk for cancer or have already developed cancer.
There are no screening tests or screening guidelines for leukemia. Children with Down Syndrome, though, should be closely monitored for development of leukemia during childhood and beyond.
