CLL treatment

at what stage of CLL does medication start?
my dad was diagonosed with CLL in dec 2006. at that time his tlc count was ~ 20000 and normal Hb and platelet count. no other symptoms, except e few nodes in the neck.
doctors did not prescribe any treatment.
thereafter the count increased sharply, and today it has reached abt a lakh, but Hb and platlet count still normal. No other symptoms still, except those nodes in the neck.

is their no treatment till the cells dont harm...that is like sitting and waiting for their attck!!
