Please tell me, could a lymphoma change your blood type expression (agglutination) from o to b?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No, but...

There are carcinomas that produce carbohydrates that can bind to type o blood cells and mimic b, but i've not heard of a lymphoma doing that.
However, there are a few "weak b" blood groups that have typed as o's in the past. I'll bet this is you. Your blood bank knows how to deal with these. Best wishes.
