Leukemia in Children: Spotting the Early Warning Sign

Sturdy Lifestyle


Leukemia can weaken the immune system, making it more difficult for children to fight off infections. Children with leukemia may develop frequent infections, including ear infections, sinus infections, and  skin infections. 

Bruising and Bleeding 

Leukemia can cause a decrease in platelets, which are cells that help the blood to clot. As a result, children with leukemia may experience  bruising and bleeding, even from minor injuries 

Joint and Bone Pain 

Children with leukemia may experience joint and bone pain, which may be more noticeable at night. 

Loss of Appetite 

Children with leukemia may experience a loss of appetite, which can lead to weight loss and fatigue.
