Do these levels indicate leukemia in anyway?

User Profile
My daughter is 5 and about 2 weeks ago she started getting ill. She ran fevers up to 103. She has pains in her legs, sever stomach and head pain. She gets dizzy and was vomitting. she looks pain and has dark lines under her eyes. She also is sleeping alot more than normal. I took her to the ER a week ago and they did some tests and said she had Pancytopenia and mentioned cancer but said not to be alarmed. Easier said than done. 3 days later she went to her normal doctor feeling a bit better but still sleeping alot and still in pain. They repeated her tests and are refering her to a hematologist. She did have a mono test done and it was negative.I have posted her levels below. I have to wait 2 more days to see the doctor and I am driving myself crazy. Do these levels indicate leukemia in anyway?

It is difficult to comment on patients that one has never seen.

Based upon the lab results that you have included, it looks like your daughter is anemic. As there can be many causes of anemia, I'm afraid that I cannot tell you why this is so in her case.

Hopefully, a non-life-threatening and treatable cause for her anemia will be found.
