Hav low body temperature week+ 35c to 36c. Night sweats 6 mos+. Thyroid tests in range. All cbc fine except wbc and neutrophil ⬆seen dr. Leukemia? Or?
No: Cuatnaeous leukemia can rarely present as a skin lesion and not lumps on neck. Think more of those lumps present for a long time that do not appear to have enlarged dramatically or increased in number and one should suspect a benign process. While these could be inflammatory nodes, more likely one thinks of lipomas or sebaceous cysts.

Can hlh leukemia or general leukemia be hereditary? I have symptoms and considering a biopsy of the lymph node in my groin or neck. Please let me know

4.5 year old sick for months, neck mass, antibiotics didn't help, pale, random aches, weight loss, cbc borderline. Possible leukemia?
Neck mass: Did the CBC show any immature or blast cells, how big is the neck lump? Is she febrile? Any other lumps or lymph nodes in other areas? Any bruises?

Hive like bumps on ankle and hands not itchy anymore. Pea sized mass back of neck under hairline kinda movable. Leukemia or lymphoma all I'm 18 scared?
Hives are generally: Itchy, but may not be any longer, if you're taking an antihistamine. However, this rash may not be hives; it is difficulty knowing without seeing it. The lump at the back of your neck is most likely a lymph node and likely not cancer....however, you really should see your doctor to check both of these issues to be properly diagnosed and treated.
