I am dating someone who claims to have leukemia. He goes to work and is living a normal life. He told me he has last stage of leukemia. But I feel he is lying about his condition. He says he vomits blood but he hasn't lost any hair or weight. Can a person with leukemia live a normal life like that?

First, you need to understand that there are several forms of leukemia. Each form has its own characteristics (cause, manifestations, prognosis, treatment). So in one case a patient with such a diagnosis can be completely cured and feel fine, and in the other one a long treatment will be required and it may not yield results. I want to note that in our time this disease is treated quite successfully. Do not worry in vain.
