Children may have repeated upper respiratory infections . these are usually viral in nature and do not require antibiotics .
the symtoms of leukemia are severe infections requiring hospitalization, bleeding spots over body, decreased haemoglobin, weight loss , stomach fullness, bone pains etc . the lab reports mentioned are all normal except atypical lymphocytes which can also be seen in viral infections.
