Frequent Fever Accompanied By Increased Levels Of Leukocytes?
Hello and good night, sorry before I was only 18 years old, I just wanted to ask, I did often go to the hospital, but where did I go to the hospital 2 times I was hot and my leukocytes were high, my first leukocyte infection was around 18,000 and the second 16,000 before I once had a high fever at home given the medicine began to subside but the next day I still felt a fever and on my forehead was colored like a bruise, if every time I had a high fever and continued high leukocytes, could I get leukemia? please explain
Fever is a thing that can be caused due to various causes. From the situation that you are experiencing, fever is accompanied by an increase in leukocyte levels is not necessarily caused by leukemia huh. Leukocytes can basically increase if there is a bacterial infection in the body. The infection can also cause a fever huh. Some causes that can cause fever are accompanied by increased levels of leukocytes such as lung infections, gastrointestinal infections, to urinary tract infections.
Leukemia can indeed cause an increase in leukocyte levels, but to establish a diagnosis of leukemia certainly cannot be made based solely on leukocyte levels. Further tests are needed such as type count, microscopic examination of blood cells. Leukemia can cause symptoms such as weakness, easy pain, weight loss and can be accompanied by the appearance of lumps in the body and bleeding due to a decrease in platelet levels.
Therefore, it is recommended that you go directly to a specialist in internal medicine, so the doctor can examine your condition further. It is important that you do not smoke and do not consume alcohol. Consumption of nutritious food, consumption of enough vegetables and fruit for better endurance. Drink enough water.
