not sure if anyone can help or give advice as I don't have that much information myself at the moment. Basically my 12m old son has had a enlarged lymph node in his neck for the last few months and now the nodes surrounding it are starting to get bigger. My doctor had a blood test taken which showed an abnormal white blood cell count but he didn't tell me what was abnormal about it. He said all the other bit were ok such as he isn't anemic. He has now reffered him to the pediactric consultant and I am now waiting for an appointment. Could this be early leukemia or am I getting myself worried over nothing???
Could it be an infection that he is fighting off at the moment. Lymph nodes enlarge as they distribute fluid and are vital in the immune response. An abnormal ussually a high wbc would also suggest infection but not too sure about a low wbc that has more to do with the body not being able to compensate for the infection.
I am in the same position my 5 year old daughter has has swollen lymph nodes for over a month now and also a cough that took months to get rid of the GP took blood and it also came back abnormal I am waiting to see a pedeatritian.. Im scared like you it doesnt matter how sensible you try to be the chance of Leukimia is to scarey for a parent to hear! any advice would be great !
