In brief: 50% are asymptomatic
About half of patients with chronic leukemia have no symptoms and are discovered on a routine CBC (complete blood count) usually obtained for some other reason.
When symptoms do occur, they may include fatigue or tiredness, swollen glands or lymph nodes, low grade fever or sweats that are persistent. More advanced symptoms can include, bleeding, bruising, anemia, enlarging belly or an infection.
