Multiple: Kids with leukemia can have different presentations. Fever, anemia (low red blood cells--causes paleness and tiredness), easy bruising (not just from the knee to ankle), easy bleeding, bone or joint pain, limp, poor appetite, irritability, headache, seizures, swollen lymph nodes (glands), or shortness of breath. Many of these can have multiple causes, so if you're worried, see a pediatrician!
