#SpotLeukaemia

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month and we want to raise awareness of leukaemia with our Spot Leukaemia Campaign.

The campaign seeks to raise awareness of what leukaemia is, the symptoms to spot and who can be affected by leukaemia. We want to equip people to spot the signs and symptoms of leukaemia, and urge them to visit their GP if they have any concerns. Early diagnosis saves lives.

 

Spot the signs and symptoms of leukaemia

Leukaemia can be hard to spot because the signs and symptoms are common to other unrelated illnesses. Knowing what to look out for could help you make the decision to visit your GP sooner. Early diagnosis saves lives.

The six most common symptoms experienced by all leukaemia patients prior to diagnosis are:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Bruising or bleeding
  3. Bone/joint pain
  4. Fever or night sweats
  5. Sleeping problems
  6. Shortness of breath

Learn about the signs and symptoms of leukaemia.
