Running a fever , leukemia

User Profile
My daughter is 19mo and has been running a fever every night since March. She does not have one when she gets up in the morning and it rises throughout the day by the evening it is 101-102. 2 CBC\\\'s have been done and were both normal, there are no swollen nodes,abd ultrasound was normal and CT of the sinuses is normal. She acts like a normal toddler eats ok and has been gaining weight ok but has been in the 4-7 percentile for weight since she was born. I have been told by one doctor that he could do a bone marrow biopsy but am really conflicted with this decision. Based on this information is there a real possability she could have leukemia?
