Our expert says:
Leukemia can spread to the brain, at at this time the patient may be very sick and get seizures. Treatment would not necessarily be given if the condition is terminal. These patients are usually bedridden and in a hospice or hospital but may be treated at home. Doctors tend not to make predictions on how long a patient has to live as each patient is different and although we know on average how long it takes for a patient to survive certain cancers, it differs from patient to patient.
