There is no such thing as a cancer cell count, cancer indications are measured using red and white blood cell counts.

A high white blood cell count can indicate the following cancers:
  • Chronic bone marrow diseases
  • Myeloproliferative disorder
  • Leukemia
A high red blood cell count can indicate such cancers as:
  • Cancer of the kidney
  • Lung cancer
  • Liver cancer
If you have any concerns of your blood cell counts or wish for them to be checked then it is highly advised to go to the doctors. Although high or low blood cell counts can indicate cancer, they can also be due to a number of other diseases or conditions.

Many are treatable with the correct medication and so the sooner they are detected, the better the chances are of recovery. Although it may feel right to check symptoms and causes online before troubling a doctor, this can actually have a detrimental affect. The problem with searching your symptoms online is that the symptoms for something very serious are very similar to something that is easily treated or will simply pass through your system in a few days which can lead to you causing yourself or someone else undue anxiety and worry.

While you may not be able to distinguish which case, if any, you may have, a professional doctor will have that skill. Therefore, if you go to the doctor straight away they will be able to diagnose you and let you know for sure what may be wrong with you.
