Researchers from the British charity Blood Cancer UK said excessive night sweats may indicate the presence or development of leukemia.
According to experts, increased sweating is not uncommon in women during and before menopause. But with leukemia, increased night sweats are constant, not intermittent.
Scientists surveyed 2,000 patients with blood cancer. As a result, it turned out that 31% had excessive sweating even at night before the disease was discovered.
Experts are urging to seek immediate medical attention if persistent excessive sweating forces you to change your clothes.
“It’s easy to ignore excessive sweating and blame it on summer weather,” said Blood Cancer UK.
In conclusion, the scientists added that one of the reasons for increased sweating in blood cancer is the body’s attempt to overcome the disease.
