Is nose bleeds a symptom of leukemia?

Children with leukemia may bruise and bleed very easily, experience frequent nosebleeds, or bleed for an unusually long time after even a minor cut because leukemia destroys the bone marrow’s ability to produce clot-forming platelets! Any Suggestions here?

    When nosebleeds are present in a person with leukemia, it is solely because the platelet count is very low (due to the platelets being crowded out by the leukemia cells!) Any cancer that involves the bone marrow has the potential to cause low platelets! I know a couple of children with neuroblastoma metastasized to the bone marrow who presented with low blood counts (platelets, hemoglobin, white blood cells) and consquently, nosebleeds! But that is rare!Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (present just behind the nose) can present with nosebleeds!
