Signs & Symptoms of Ph+ CML

Many people experience no signs, no symptoms, no warning.

Many people who are diagnosed with Philadelphia chromosome–positive chronic myeloid leukemia early on may not have any clear signs or symptoms. 

The first clue that someone has Ph+ CML is often an abnormally high white blood cell count. Typically, this is found by means of a blood test that your doctor may order during a routine checkup or while looking into another health issue.

Some potential symptoms

Among those patients with Ph+ CML who do report symptoms, they may include:

  • Feeling unusually tired
  • Shortness of breath while doing everyday activities
  • Fever
  • Bone pain
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Pain or a feeling of fullness on the upper left side of the belly area (abdomen), under the ribs
  • Unusual sweating at night

Why your doctor may prescribe TASIGNA

If you’ve just been diagnosed with Ph+ CML in chronic phase, your doctor may prescribe TASIGNA® (nilotinib) capsules as a treatment option. Learn about TASIGNA
