The symptoms of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) vary at different stages. Many people with CLL have no symptoms at early stages and then have symptoms over time. Such symptoms include:
  • Enlarged, but painless, lymph nodes and a spleen caused by an accumulation of leukemic lymphocytes
  • Fatigue and/or short of breath in routine physical activities caused by anemia
  • Fever
  • Pain in the upper left abdomen, which may be caused by an enlarged spleen
  • Night sweats
  • Weight loss due to decreased appetite and/or increased use of energy
  • Frequent infections caused by low immunoglobulin levels and decreased neutrophil counts
