This could result in bleeding, infections, and anemia (the lack of red blood cells). In addition to these symptoms, Leukemia can also invade the lymph nodes and cause them to swell, causing swelling, infections, and impair other organs from performing their respective functions.
If you are a Veteran who has been diagnosed with Leukemia, you can receive disability compensation if you can connect the cancer to your time in service. For Veterans who were stationed in Camp Lejeune during a specified timeframe, you are presumptively service connected for Leukemia. This means that if you receive a diagnosis of Leukemia and were stationed at Camp Lejeune, you do not need to prove that the cancer is connected to service.
