The most common signs of acute
leukemia are easy bruising or bleeding (as a result of platelet
deficiency), paleness or unjustified fatigue (as a result of
anemia), recurrent minor infections or poor
healing of minor cuts (because of low white cells count).
A number of people with chronic leukemia will not experience any symptom and will be diagnosed during a routine medical check.
It is important to mention that the symptoms above are common to a number of diseases and do not necessarily indicate leukemia. However, as acute leukemia progresses fast and early diagnosis is key to beating it, it is wise to schedule an appointment with a physician for a check if you are experiencing these symptom.
