Acute Myeloid Leukemia is a condition that occurs in the soft tissues within the bone, called the bone marrow. This is the site where blood cells are produced. Signs and symptoms of this condition include frequent infections, shortness of breath, pain and pale skin. The commonly found causes are smoking, genetic defects and benzene exposure. This cancer gives rise to the development of leukemic cells, which otherwise would have been healthy white blood cells.
