I am a 45 y/o female who on routine labwork found out my WBC were high (15.5) I am asymptomatic and my MD ran a multitude of tests which all came back negative (CXR, urine, blood cultures). She sent me to an oncologist who ran many more tests. All the tests have come back negative (arthritis, lupus, infection, hepatitis....) except my ERS was high and the LAP was abnormal. I now am scheduled for a bone marrow biopsy and CT scan. I am so scared - the doctor was honest with me, saying they are looking for CLL or Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Any information would be helpful - I'm really scared!
