    The early warning signs of leukemia include paleness, fatigue, weight loss, a tendency to bruise easily, repeated infections, and heavy or uncontrolled bleeding, such as nosebleeds. Any of these symptoms can appear suddenly in acute leukemia. Normally, a person with acute leukemia will feel sick due to these symptoms and see their doctor. The progress of chronic leukemia can be slow and produce no symptoms for years. Chronic leukemia is often detected by a doctor during a routine checkup, before the patient is aware of any symptoms.
