Although chlorambucil is used to treat cancer, it may rarely increase your risk of developing other cancers. Also, chlorambucil may lower your ability to fight infections. This may make you more likely to get a serious (rarely fatal) infection or make any infection you have worse. Tell your doctor right away if you develop unusual growths or lumps, swollen glands, signs of infection (such as a sore throat that doesn't go away, fever, chills), easy bruising/bleeding, or unusual tiredness.
Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of treatment with this medication.
