The symptoms of leukemia can be quite variable. These may include fevers, chills, frequent infecitons, enlarged lymph nodes, unexplained weight loss, extreme fatigue, excessive bleeding or bruising, night sweats, and bone pain, among other symptoms. However, any of these symptoms can be caused by multiple other illnesses, and so they are not specific to leukemia.
