What are the symptoms of chronic myeloid leukemia?

The symptoms of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) vary at different stages. Many people with CLL have no symptoms at early stages and then have symptoms over time.

Such symptoms include:

  • Enlarged, but painless, lymph nodes and a spleen caused by an accumulation of leukemic lymphocytes
  • Fatigue and/or short of breath in routine physical activities caused by anemia
  • Fever
  • Pain in the upper left abdomen, which may be caused by an enlarged spleen
  • Night sweats
  • Weight loss due to decreased appetite and/or increased use of energy
  • Frequent infections caused by low immunoglobulin levels and decreased neutrophil counts
