Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia: Symptoms
What are the symptoms of acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)?
Symptoms of ALL can be different in each person. The most common symptoms are:
Easy bleeding and bruising
Pain or fullness below your ribs (from a swollen liver or spleen)
Rashes of tiny flat, red, or purple spots (caused by bleeding)
Fever with no clear cause
Feeling very tired (fatigue)
Frequent infections or infections that don't go away
Trouble breathing or shortness of breath
Aches in bones and joints, your back, or your belly
Swollen lymph nodes (painless lumps under your skin in your neck, armpit, or groin)
Loss of appetite
Unplanned weight loss
Nausea and vomiting
When to see your healthcare provider
Many of these symptoms can be caused by other, more common health problems. In fact, most of them are more likely to be caused by something else. But it's important to see a healthcare provider if you have these symptoms. Only a healthcare provider can tell if you have ALL, another type of cancer, or some other medical problem that needs to be treated.
