CML (Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia) is usually discovered during a physical exam or routine blood test and close to 50% of patients found to be in the chronic phase have no symptoms at all (asymptomatic).

Those who do have “symptoms” may have one or more of the following:

  • Fatigue that lingers and/or doesn’t go away

  • Shortness of breath

  • Weight loss

  • Unexplained bruising

  • Night sweats

  • Pale complexion due to anemia

  • Tightness in the abdomen, abdominal pain or mass

  • Enlarged spleen (50% of cases) or liver (15% of cases)
