[QUOTE=deon50;3712173]how sudden can leukemia occur?[/QUOTE]

I was diagnosed with AML and did not have bleeding gums or patichiae. The doctors believe my Acute Myolegenous (spelling?) Leukemia developed in a period of weeks, however there are Chronic Leukemias that take much longer. Basically, my bone marrow cells deformed and reproduced mutated cells very quickly, called blast cells.
Other symptoms I had began with headaches, severe night sweats, difficulty breathing, and super low energy.
About 15 yrs ago I had problems with anemia and wonder sometimes if that wasn't a precursor to leukemia.

To answer your question, no, bleeding gums and patichiae do not mean leukemia.
