My niece is having an off again, on again low temperature. She has seen many doctors and she thinks it could be blood cancer due to a higher lymphocyte count of 45. Can anyone please help me understand this better. Worried. Thanks

Hi Vaseem -

I am sorry to hear this has you concerned. Unfortunately, this is difficult to answer since many conditions can cause a fever and high white count.

Hoping you find answers very soon. Please be sure to let us know how she is doing.
