When should I see a doctor?

Call your doctor if:

  • You experience any of the symptoms listed in the symptom section and cannot readily explain their occurrence. In this instance, your blood cell count should be tested.
  • You experience unexplained bleeding, high fever or a seizure. These signs may indicate that you may need emergency treatment for acute leukemia.
  • You are in remission from leukemia and notice signs of recurrence, such as infection or easy bleeding. If so, you should have a follow-up examination.
