Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Symptoms - Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) commonly shows no symptoms in patients at the time they are diagnosed. When there are symptoms, they are often non-specific. The following are some symptoms of CLL: swelling of the spleen and/or lymph nodes, anemia (low red blood cell count, resulting in fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath), weight loss, fever, night sweats, and leukopenia (shortage of normal white blood cells, leading to increased susceptibility to infection). Because chronic lymphocytic leukemia symptoms can be vague, specific blood and bone marrow tests are needed to make an accurate diagnosis.
