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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Hard to: Generalize, but most commonly patients present with severe fatigue, sob, easy bruisability, and sometimes fever.
Leukemia, especially: The acute forms, are associated with anemia due to crowding out rbc production by the premature blast cells.
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)
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.
Can you tell me if my sister has anemia because of a pregnancy that did not go so well. Will she develop leukemia?
Can you tell me what you suggest if my sister has anemia because of a pregnancy that did not go so well. Will she develop leukemia?
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?
Variable: Hi 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
I had anemia in the past. I wanted to know the symptoms of leukemia. I have dizziness, headache, loss of appetite I eat sometimes 1 a day. Bruise easy?
See below: There are many different types of leukemias and those present with different symptoms. See this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/leukemia/basics/symptoms/con-20024914
