In brief: Not necessarily
A person may have a lymphoma with fever and sweats, and yet the WBC count may be normal.
If one thinks about lymphoma, one might also look for enlarged lymph nodes that can be palpated or that may be detected on a cxr or cat scan, enlargement of the spleen, and other findings. Blood tests may show an elevation in the sed rate test. Other conditions may cause these symptoms besides lymphoma.
