Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is cancer that starts inside bone marrow, the soft tissue inside bones that helps form blood cells. The cancer grows from cells that produce white blood cells. It most often occurs in middle-aged adults and in children. It is usually associated with a chromosome abnormality called the Philadelphia chromosome.
