Hello.i just read about AML and i am satisfied with the information providede. Though i have one small enquiry; Anthracycline has been listed as one of the drugs given during Chemotherapy that may cause AML in the future and yet it has been listed as a drug for treating AML. Doess it mean that you are at risk of contracting AML again? I will apprecite your assistance on this qustion..

Anthracyclines have been found to produce AML in patients who underwent treatment for breast cancer and Hodgkin's lymphoma, especially when used with other anticancer drugs and in high doses. Currently anthracyclines are very effective in AML, and the risk of them causing AML are small, hence they are used in AML.

No, that only means that they certify that your cancer is cured only after 5 years, till then they monitor and see that it doesn't relapse by then.
