Symptoms And Treatments For Leukemia

Symptoms will vary somewhat depending on the type of leukemia and its effects on blood cell counts. Some kinds of leukemia, for example, are accompanied by anemia or an abnormally low number of red blood cells. In AML, the affected white blood cells are abnormally large and can cause blockages that result in a rare condition called leukostasis that causes symptoms resembling those seen in a stroke-like slurred speech, confusion, and headache.
