What are the symptoms of acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)?

Symptoms of ALL can be different in each person. The most common symptoms include:

  • Bleeding

  • Bruising

  • Pale skin

  • Rashes of tiny flat red spots (caused by bleeding)

  • Fever with no clear cause

  • Feeling weak

  • Feeling tired (fatigue)

  • Frequent infections or infections that don't go away

  • Trouble breathing or shortness of breath

  • Dizziness

  • Aches in bones and joints, your back, or your belly

  • Swollen lymph nodes, liver, or spleen

  • Loss of appetite and weight loss

  • Night sweats

  • Headaches

  • Blurred vision

  • Nausea and vomiting

When to see your healthcare provider

Many of these symptoms can be caused by other health problems. In fact, most of them are more likely to be caused by something else. But it is important to see your 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.
