Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Unlikely

Leukemia
These symptoms can be interpreted many ways, but if leukemia were present (which is very improbable) the symptoms would not improve, but get progressively worse. Sounds as if you have been reading texts looking for a diagnosis and are learning that there is more to medical practice than is written down. See a good clinician. Good luck and get better soon.

Dr. Michael Engel answered:

Can leukemia rash be confused for ringworm?

Hopefully not...

Tinea
The petechiae rash that often accompanies leukemia presentation is quite different from that seen with ringworm. Of note, ringworm (aka, tinea corpora) is not caused by a worm, but rather by a fungus (aka, dermatophyte). It is highly contagious, but there are several effective treatments for the problem.

Dr. Scott Selinger answered:

Can sinusitis and rash and slightly elevated WBC mean leukemia?

Not likely

Sinusitis
An elevated WBC usually just means that your body is under stress and is expected with a sinus infection. A rash can be from any number of things (including medicines, stress, and viruses) but is rarely a sign of any cancer. Sinus infections and rashes are both much more common than cancers

Dr. Weili Sun answered:

At what stage of leukemia is the symptom of a red spots/rash on arms and chest that are itcy ?

Depends

Unlike solid tumor, there is differet stage, leukemia is usually disseminated disease at diagnosis. For someone without history of leukemia, rash usually is not caused by leukemia (although occasionally leukemia can present this way). For someone with confirmed diagnosis of leukemia, rash could be symptoms of leukemia, or infection, or medication reaction. Check with your oncologist.

Dr. Scott Selinger answered:

Ref. range 4.0-11.0. My white blood cell count was 11.8. How likely is leukemia? I had a sinus infection and abd rash at the time.

Not likely

Skin_rash
A number of things can cause an elevated WBC including infections (like your sinus infection) and even just stress (mental or physical), so it would seem unlikely that just based on this you would have leukemia or any other serious condition.

Dr. James B. Ball answered:

My 11 year old has scattered severe bruising all over her legs, ringing in her ears, dizziness, headaches and a red bumpy rash? Chance of leukemia?

Needs to be tested

Leg
I would have a CBC (complete blood count) performed today. The bruising makes me think about low platelets. This can happen in leukemia, but is also common in post-infectious situations like ITP. Her headaches and ringing in her ears could be viral infection, or even bacterial infection. However, headaches can be seen with anemia. A simple blood test will be very helpful. Good luck.

Who gets leukemia?

Anyone but rarely

Leukemia
Leukemia, although frightening, is a rare disease. Outside of children, many adults do die from the acute disease although this is not the case with the chronic leukemias. Although there are a few things that may increase the chance of getting leukemia (high doses of radiation, previous treatment of cancer, Down's syndrome, some chemicals), no cause can be found in most cases.
