In brief: Not usually

Depending on the circumstance we sometimes test for both, however we typically do not test for both at the same time in the same patient.

In brief: Yes

Part of the evaluation for lymphoma is a blood count.
This is the best screening test for leukemia. Frequently, a bone marrow examination is also performed in the testing for lymphoma. The bone marrow test would also evaluate for the possibility of leukemia.
