The are 4 stages of leukemia. Symptoms of the fourth stage include fever, weight loss or night sweats. The prognosis for stage 4 depends on the response to chemotherapy; however, patients are more likely to die within 3 to 4 years of diagnosis. Patients with leukemia are more likely to develop a secondary cancer, especially skin cancer.
