My mother was diagnosed for CLL after lot of tests including PET scan 5 months ago and the doctor said it is in first stage and needs no urgent treatment. Whether the treatment can be postponed for this?

CLL is slow growing disease. There is option of only observation in this patients. But you need to do regular follow up. There are some conditions in CLL when we can start chemo. Please consult me privately for more details.
