What are the symptoms of myelodysplastic syndromes?
The symptoms of anemia and MDS are often similar. Symptoms of anemia include fatigue, shortness of breath, general weakness, and pale skin. These symptoms may also indicate myelogenous leukemia, other symptoms of which include weight loss, mild depression, and loss of appetite. Because the symptoms associated with aplastic anemia and MDS may also be indicative of other health problems, only an oncologist or other qualified doctor can make an accurate diagnosis.
