Would a complete cbc show if my son had leukemia? They (docs) mentioned a spinal tap and I am curious as to what they are looking for? He has been coughing, very lathargec, fever spikes on and off, headache on and off, ear infection that won't heal with antibiotic and his spleen is a little enlarge from what the ultrasound showed. They don't know what is wrong with him and he has been like this for two straight weeks. I want some other opinions and maybe answers? The only thing I think they could be looking for is leukemia? His white blood count was high but not much and they said it is probably from his ear infection it was....17,400. My son is 7 yeras old.
