Leukemia Symptoms

The onset of leukemia is often asymptomatic; in fact, the majority of leukemics do not suspect any clinical signs characteristic of the disease. They learn they have leukemia during a blood test or medical exams done for any other medical condition. In general, mostly when the disease becomes chronic, leukemia symptoms may include:

  • weight loss
  • decreased appetite
  • fever or chills
  • shortness of breath
  • bone pain or tenderness
  • excessive night sweats
  • easy bleeding or bruising
  • enlargement of the spleen (splenomegaly)
  • Joint pain (arthralgia)
  • liver enlargement (hepatomegaly)
  • weakness and fatigue 
  • physical weakness and loss of strength (asthenia)  
  • small red spots in your skin (petechiae)
