Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been diagnosed with leukemia according to the Los Angeles Times. The form of leukemia is called Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia, and is treatable with oral medication. He was diagnosed last December, and says that the long term prognosis is good. Hot flashes and constant sweating alerted Kareem that something was wrong and prompted him to seek medical attention.
