Leukemia Symptoms 

The onset of leukemia is often asymptomatic; in fact, the majority of leukemics do not suspect any clinical signs characteristic of the disease. They learn they have leukemia during a blood test or medical exams done for any other medical condition. In general, mostly when the disease becomes chronic, leukemia symptoms may include:  

·         weight loss 

·         decreased appetite
