While leukemia may be infamous
for being the cancer that strikes children and young adults, in reality,
it affects more adults than it does children. Do always take
any of these symptoms seriously should you experience them.
1. Tiredness, Weakness,
Or Feeling Out Of Breath
Unfortunately, sometimes, fatigue can signal the
presence of a cancer like leukemia.
Many women assume the anemia they're experiencing is
due to a deficiency of this mineral. But anemia can be a symptom of leukemia as
Excessive sweating, especially at night, is something
that has dozens of possible causes. But it is also an early sign of leukemia.
4. Mid-Cycle Bleeding And
Heavy Menstrual Flow
You may also notice an uncharacteristic bleed midway
through your menstrual cycle. Some women with leukemia also experience heavy
menstrual flow during their period.
5. Bruising, Petechiae,
Gum And Nose Bleeds
When your body bruises very easily or very often, you
should be aware that this could be a symptom of leukemia. Bleeding gums or very
severe or frequent nosebleeds are other warning signs.
6. Swollen Lymph Nodes
Some women who have an enlarged spleen may feel
discomfort or even pain in the region beneath the ribs, to the left side. You
may wind up eating less due to a false sense of fullness.
Unexplained weight loss is not a great sign and may be
the result of an underlying problem, including leukemia or other cancers.
