I do feel unwell. I am also a bit dizzy. My oncologist had told me to go to the hospital if I had a temperature of 100, but I am not sure if this means a temperature of 100 no matter what or if I am ill.

The standard advice would to been seen for an exam and to have your blood count checked either if you feel unwell or have a fever.

 

As you have both then for sure you need to go to the hospital.
