Bone or joint pain

Certain subtypes of leukemia, like acute myeloid leukemia (AML), often causes pain in the bones or joints where it’s growing. That’s because as the cancer cells take up space in the bone marrow it makes the bone marrow become overcrowded and enlarged, resulting in pain on or near the bones or joints where the infected bone marrow is.

Night sweats

There are a lot of medical explanation as to why you may be experiencing night sweats, but if you’re waking up completely drenched night after night, leukemia or lymphoma can be a possible cause. Both conditions can cause fevers that can trigger nighttime sweatiness, but the cancer cells can also provoke the brain to raise body temperature. If you have to change your clothes in the middle of the night because they are so wet or you find yourself heavily sweating during the day, it’s time to talk to a medical professional.
