  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) are the same disease. It is a slow-growing  cancer that develops when lymphocytes, a mature type of white blood cell, do not fully develop. These abnormal lymphocytes do not fight infection well and crowd out healthy blood cells.
