Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML): Symptoms
What are the symptoms of acute myeloid leukemia (AML)?
Symptoms of AML can be different in each person. The most common symptoms include:
Recurring or frequent infections
Feeling tired (fatigue)
Shortness of breath
Aches in bones and joints
Swollen gums, lymph nodes, liver, or spleen
Loss of appetite and weight loss
Rashes of tiny flat red spots (caused by bleeding)
Sores or wounds that don't heal
When to see your healthcare provider
Many of these symptoms can be caused by other health problems. In fact, most of them are more likely to be caused by something else. But it is important to see your healthcare provider if you have these symptoms. Only a healthcare provider can tell if you have AML, another type of cancer, or another medical problem that needs to be treated.
