Brief Answer:
Surely, it is a not a consequence of leukaemia.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for the query.,

Sinus infection, ear problem etc are not necessarily a consequence of leukaemia because it have many other associated problems which you don't have.

But doubt is our greatest enemy so please consult some pathology lab and get your bood histopathological exam done. I am sure the results will be with in normal limit.

In the mean time please consult an ear, nose and throat specialist for your sinus evaluation. Most probably you may have chronic sinusitis which is also causing your ear problems.

Hope this will help you and I am ready for follow ups.

My sinus and ear are not present at this time, just past history. Wondering about my CBC numbers though and why they sent them to pathology.

Hi again , the CBC values keeps on changing even after a slightest infection. And they sent to pathology just to confirm certain haematology findings. it is quite a normal condition.
