I have CLL, Getting noticeable lumps on both sides of my neck, now behind my neck.. my oncologist keeps telling me that he can't treat me because I don't have any chills or sweating? My White blood count is 45. Been seein him for a year and he spends about 10 minutes with me and tells me I'm doing fine?

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Not really but I'm going to start

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I feel great, I workout, lift weights, jump rope. I do have Thyroid Cancer, I guess that's the real cause but no other symptoms per blood test and Cats can.
