Leukemia Symptoms; 11 Common Leukemia Signs & Symptoms

3. Fever

It is one of the most common symptoms, especially in acute forms of leukemia. Sometimes, patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia have fever with not many other symptoms and no signs of infections. Doctors investigate these patients looking for infections because fever is a sign of this type of ailment until proved otherwise, and they still do it in diagnosed patients because infections can be lethal in leukemia. Thus, if you have been diagnosed with leukemia and have a new and unusual bout of fever, it is very important to ask your doctor about your condition. Not being overconfident about fever would help doctors detect and treat infections faster before they spread and become difficult to manage.
