Signs and symptoms of AML
The signs and symptoms can be similar to those of common conditions so it’s hard to recognise, but common symptoms of AML can include:
- Bruising or bleeding
- Repeated infections
It’s important to know what’s normal for you. If you or a loved one experience one or a combination of these it’s always best to ask your GP for a blood test.
