There are many different types of mutations in AML, and FLT3 mutations are the most common. Doctors test for mutations with bone marrow or blood tests. This gives them more information about your type of AML.

When Do Doctors Test for Mutations?

Your doctor may test you for mutations at different points during your treatment journey before deciding on a therapy. This is because some mutations, like FLT3, can change over time.

It is important to test for mutations again at relapse or if your disease progresses. It could impact the way your AML is treated.

Ask your doctor if you've been retested for FLT3 mutation at relapse.
