Enlarged spleen and liver

User Profile
My mother loosed 15 kg weight without any reason after some test it was diagnosis there is enlarged spleen and liver and also a very high WBC 275000. After 4 days when i took her to a censor hospital WBC increased to 397000 I Started the treatment by using turmeric and it show great improvements. At 1st week WBC reduced to 345000, 2nd week 42000. But after 5 weeks it again move up to 180000. Is it leukemia? or it is just because of enlarged spleen?.
What should i do now?.

It certainly sounds like leukemia, based upon your description.

She should have a bone marrow biopsy performed by a Hematologist/Oncologist to confirm the diagnosis, so that she can be properly treated.
