Early in the disease, there may be no noticeable symptoms, and many cases are diagnosed from routine blood tests. The following are the most common symptoms of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently.
Symptoms may include:
Persistent weakness or fatigue
Swollen lymph nodes
Enlarged spleen, which can cause loss of appetite
Easy bruising or bleeding
The symptoms of chronic lymphocytic leukemia may resemble other blood disorders or medical problems. Always consult your doctor for a diagnosis.
