When the cancer develops in the lymphocytes (lymphoid lineage), it is called lymphocytic leukemia, while cancer of the granulocytes or monocytes (myeloid lineage) is described as myelogenous leukemia. The rate of disease progression is an additional feature used for classification. In chronic leukemias, the immature hematopoietic progenitors (colloquially referred to as blasts) accumulate slowly and continue to form functional hematopoietic cells; because of this, disease progression is slow. On the other hand, in acute leukemias, the progenitors proliferate rapidly, resulting in blast accumulation, decreased turnover of mature hematopoietic cells, and rapid disease progression.
