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 (thrombocytopenia)
- Frequent infections (leukopenia)
- 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.
