If you've been pale for years, that shouldn't be a concern. If you're thinking Leukemia, then your skin tone would be yellow. Also, anemics bruise easily...is it a bruise? Are you vomiting at all?

Skin would be yellow with Leukemia? Could you explain this please? Yellow skin is usually associated with jaundice--a condition not necessarily occurring in leukemia. And its the thrombocytopenia in leukemia that causes one to bruise easily, not anemia.

I don't know a lot about leukemia, but jaundice can occur with liver diseases, and from what I understand, the liver and spleen may be enlarged with leukemia.
