In brief: Acute vs chronic

In many chronic leukemia- people usually are without symptoms and the only abnormality is the abnormal blood work.
When more advanced- decrease blood counts can happen causing fatigue, lack of energy , bruising etc. Acute leukemia is a life threatening cancer.It may be presented with fatigue, bleeding, infections, weight loss, fevers, chill, bony pain etc. Discuss further with your oncologist.
