Can You Have Leukemia And Not Anemia
A malignant hematologic neoplasm that originates in the bone marrow and represents a clonal proliferation of hematopoietic elements belonging to any of the myeloid, lymphoid, erythroid, and megakaryocytic lineages. Of note, other hematologic neoplasms like lymphoma or myeloma may demonstrate a leukemic phase without actually originating in the bone marrow ...Read more
Yes: Depending on the type of leukemia, this is possible. For example, chronic lymphocytic leukemia is a slowly prgressive disease and it may take a while before the marrow becomes significantly involved to the point of affecting the red blood cells. Also, in the early stages of leukemia, anemia may not be present. ...Read more
Yes.: I would rephrase as can I have leukemia despite having a complete blood count (cbc)? Yes. Leuk- (WBC) -emia (blood) suggests that the white blood cells in the blood are present/elevated. Some leukemias have lymphoma counterparts cll/sll that are the same cells but present more predominantly in the lymph nodes. Some leukemias develop fast and a prior CBC may have been normal. ...Read more
3yr old was diagnosed with mild anemia, what could cause this? Could it be leukemia? :/ very worried, she has never been a big eater (23.5pounds)
Not at all: Pernicious anemia results from poor dietary uptake of vitamin b12, usually from a loss of certain cells in your stomach. These cells secrete intrinsic factor, necessary for absorption of vitamin b12. Treatment is B12 shots, potentially. Leukemia is cancer. Treatment is chemotherapy. ...Read more
Yes: Anemia is detected in a blood test by a decrease in your hemoglobin (in your red cells). It is not a true disease in its own right as it is always caused by something-blood loss and iron deficiency are common causes. Once a patient is found to have anemia, particularly if it persists, the cause of the anemia needs to be determined. Leukemia is complex and would have more than anemia. ...Read more

My dr has done about 6 dif blood tests, and the last was to test for leukemmia cuz my WBC was 14000, found some anemia. Could it be leukemia?
Great question, there's a deeper answer, but generally leukemias usually affect the white blood cell line, rather than the red blood cell lineage. What you're probably referring to is called "anemia of chronic disease". Elevated inflammatory mediators, like IL-6, impair both production and ability to incorporate iron into heme, which causes normocytosis and normochromia. Hope this helps ...Read more

My eye doctor told me I have a retinal hemorrhage. I do not have high blood pressure, diabetes, leukemia or sickle cell anemia. Another cause?
Hard to say: Anemia might be a sign of leukemia. There are so many causes of anemia that are benign that leukemia is not high on the list. Anemia does not truly turn into leukemia. A bone marrow disease mds, that often shows up as severe anemia may transform into leukemia. In that case the anemia is still just a sign. The problem lies in the bone marrow. ...Read more
I use to have lukemia, in 1990, now I have iron deficiency anemia I have been getting iron i'v for 7yrs they can't seem to figure out where the bleedi?
Iron deficiency: Iron deficiency can be caused not only due to bleeding (blood loss) but also can be caused by either decreased intake of iron or abnormal absorption of iron. Sometimes small blood vessels leakage (avm) in the small bowel is very difficult to be found/seen due to the location. Endoscopy to the area many times is just impossible. Capsule endoscopy should be done. Also check www. Ironrichfood. Org. ...Read more
