Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) are common to other, less serious illnesses. However, if you're troubled by any of the following symptoms, see your doctor:

  • fatigue or no energy (anemia)
  • pinhead-sized red spots under the skin (petechiae)
  • bruising and bleeding with no clear cause
  • frequent infections (leucopenia)
  • discomfort, a feeling of fullness or a "dragging" feeling on the upper left side of your stomach (caused by an enlarged spleen)

Your doctor may first notice signs, such as an enlarged liver or spleen, during a routine physical exam. An enlarged liver or enlarged spleen doesn't always cause noticeable symptoms.
