Symptoms

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).

  • 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)
