Hey there it is very understandable that you were worried about your condition. However there are other diseases that can cause a lot of the symptoms such as mono it is good to get checked out and a lot of leukemias have a pretty decent treatment/cure rate. The important thing is to get checked as early as possible because the earlier you to find out you have something the better chance you have at being of the cure it and control it. Nobody wants to find out they have cancer however that is typically a worst-case scenario and it may be something else and not cancer but if it is cancer it's very important to get checked out as soon as possible so you can begin treatment on it. Does that make sense.

Yup she should order blood work regardless but if not I would order a CBC and a CMP( compleat metabolic profile). This looks at the function of all your other organs and let the doctor knownhowntheybare functioning. It is probably nothing and your like me you overreact and your mind goes crazy thinking of all sorts of crazy possibilities. But a lot of times it turns out to be something much less serious
