Express notes that, according to doctors, these spots “at first appear red, but over time they change color and darken and then cause pain. Therefore, they are difficult to detect on dark skin.”

Other symptoms of leukemia include unexplained weight loss, the appearance of tumors on the skin, shortness of breath, night sweats, infection, fever, rash or itching, pain in the joints and bones, pallor and fatigue that persist even after sleep and rest.

According to doctors, symptoms of leukemia appear slowly, and in some patients they do not appear at all. But thanks to early diagnosis, this disease can be treated, and survival is possible, as 70 percent of infected people survive on average for five years.
