Symptoms of acute
leukemia depend on how much the cancer has grown. They
- A new lump or swollen gland in your neck, under your arm, or in
- Frequent nosebleeds, bleeding from the gums or rectum, more
frequent bruising, or very heavy menstrual bleeding.
- Frequent fevers.
- Night sweats.
- Bone pain.
- Unexplained appetite loss or recent weight loss.
- Feeling tired a lot without a known reason.
- Swelling and pain on the left side of the belly.
The chronic forms of leukemia often cause no symptoms until
much later in the disease. And when symptoms appear, they usually appear gradually.
