Could a CBC (blood test) show leukemia accurately always?

Could a CBC (blood test) show leukemia accurately always?

Sometimes: Sometimes but not always. Leukemia, a form of blood and bone marrow cancer, is frequently detectable in the blood; however, especially if early in the course of the disease, leukemic cells may be confined to the bone marrow and not cross into the blood in sufficient numbers to be detected by a cbc. Ultimately, the complete diagnosis and prognosis of leukemia relies on bone marrow examination. ...Read more

Yes, most times: A leukemia typically begins in the bone marrow and will often show effects on the CBC as the cancer cells spill over into the circulating blood. On rare occasions leukemia may be still limited in the bone marrow, so we make a diagnosis by taking a bone marrow sample. ...Read more

High monocyte %, manual count in toddler. All other results on CBC normal, mono CT 16. Cause for concern?

High monocyte %, manual count in toddler. All other results on CBC normal, mono CT 16. Cause for concern?

Not necessarily: The monocytes are often up some in a variety of viral illnesses but less commonly than the lymphocytes. Infectious mononucleosis does occur in a muted ( less intense) form in toddlers & the usual mono blood test can be negative until months after the illness has passed. If the kid is cruising around enjoying life i would ignore the test & get back to living. ...Read more

Cbc test results - low wbc, neutrophils, protein in urine. Could you explain?

Not enough info.: A low WBC can be from many causes including viral infection, drug side effect, autoimmune disease, congenital problem, nutritional deficiency, or one of many blood diseases both benign and malignant.

Will nicotine show up in a CBC with automated complete diff or a cmp 12 test?

Does a CBC blood test detect cancer? Specifically lymphoma?

CBC & Lymphoma: There are a few lymphomas which can be detected on a CBC but most will not show up that way. In other words, if your CBC is normal doesn't mean you don't have lymphoma. A biopsy of any enlarged lymph node is suggested. ...Read more

CBC test results: Elevated MCHC, elevated MCH, bottom of range for Haematocrit, everything else within normal ranges. What do these results mean?

Nothing: Your physician may want to repeat them. I trust you do not have spherocytosis or if you do, that you've been worked up. At most, a reticulocye count may be in order. Sometimes the machines can be a bit mis-calibrated. High MCHC is quite uncommon and if you feel well I wouldn't be troubled. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. ...Read more
