An estimated 109,500 people in the United States will be diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma this year. New cases of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma account for 8.6 percent of the 1,268,000 new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States in 2001. The total estimated number of blood-related cancers has increased only slightly for each of the past three years. Every five minutes, someone in the United States learns that they have leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma, more than 300 people a day.
