I don't think you should be concerned about cancer.

IT is preventable.

Good diet, exercise.

It is not likely you are going to get leukemia.

This is Dr. David

if your urine is dark, you might be dehydrated if you are not drinking enough water.

CLL is rare for a 46 year old.

you should be getting yearly CBC complete blood counts to watch your white blood cell counts and other blood counts.

are you seeing a doctor to get regular blood testing?
