Not Many Symptoms: Leukemia does not always cause symptoms, especially at first. When it does cause symptoms, the most common ones include: -feeling very tired and weak -bleeding more easily than normal -getting sick from infections more easily than normal these symptoms can also be caused by conditions that are not leukemia. But if you have these symptoms, you should let your doctor or nurse know.
