2. Fever and Chills
Fever may also be a sign of leukemia. An increase in body temperature is probably the most common symptom of an infection or other diseases. According to some studies, a normal temperature may range from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C). When the temperature goes higher than this, fever occurs and may sometimes be accompanied by having chills and extreme sweating.
Fever is the result when the body tries to eliminate any substances it deems to be harmful such as bacteria, viruses, or abnormal cells. Though fever itself can be treated by over the counter drugs such as paracetamol, it is important to determine the underlying cause, as it may be something serious like leukemia.
