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

The following are some of the most common symptoms of ALL. However, each person may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

  • Bleeding

  • Bruising

  • Fever and recurring infections

  • Feeling weak

  • Feeling tired (fatigue)

  • Trouble breathing or shortness of breath

  • Dizziness

  • Aches in bones and joints

  • 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, many 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 condition.
