Are repeated sore throat and ear pain symptoms of leukemia?
Hi I'm 35 5'3" and weigh 189lbs I have taken CBC tests where my Wbc's come back high I had and ear infection and my Wbc was 12.3 then the nxt week my ear infection spred into the other ear and I started to get a bladder infection I took another CBC test and it was 13.5 the Dr said to wait till my infection was gone and take the test again so I waited a week and took it again and the Wbc's came back 16.8. My sore throat is coming back now after two weeks and so is my ear pain. Is it possible that I have leukemia?
First of all I want to tell you that sore throat and ear infection are not the symptoms of leukemia. you have upper respiratory tract infection and due to that your wbc count is raising.so dont worry its just simple infection. other thing is that leukemia may not have any symptoms at all. Its only detected by peripheral smear examination. So if you have doubt then go for that.
