I have been searching the internet (which can be hazard), to find out what my symptom I am having could be a sign of? Everything I read, brings me to "Leukemia".
I have red dots and now brown dots on my skin. It isn't in a rash form, just random dots. The red dots have been there for over a year with a few brown dots. Now, it seems like over time....I'm noticing more and more.
My doctor told me they are called cherry angiomas and are from aging. I am 39 years old. Recently since there are more, especially the brown dots.....I am now scheduled for lots of bloodwork to hopefully rule out things.
I am so scared though. What exactly is Leukemia? Does anyone ever recover from this illness?
I don't know why I'm focusing only on this because according to what I've read, it could be a zillion things!
I have those dots on my skin too! and i have the same signs of luekemia. But the doctors dont know what it is! They havent testes for cancer cause they think that it isnt! But doctors sometimes DONT KNOW EVERYTHING! The dots on my skin WONT go away! Sometimes I get brown dots but the doctors just say oh its nothing....well its something! I hope you feel better!
Well .. I did have little red dots, but the were in my mouth & on my tongue. Went to the hospital & they did diagnose me with leukemia .. but I was having a lot of syptoms. Not saying that you might have it, but you're doing the right thing, checking up on it & getting blood work done. But yes, people do recover from leukemia, they are constatly doing researches on more medicines to help, so yeah. I hope all goes well.
Spots on the skin can also be mastocytosis. I have red and brown stops over most of my body now. I had been tested for Leukemia about a ziollion times, blood work was always normal, until they did a Tryptase level test and it came back elevated, which meant my Mast cells were producing histamine. Do your spots raise when scratched, or ever itch??
