My 22 yr old son has been having an ongoing problem with skin abcesses. His GP has sent him to a hematologist.oncologist that did alot of blood work and a CT scan. Tomorrow, he is having a bone marrow biopsy. His spleen is enlarged and his blood count is out of whack. (elevated WBC). I was thinking it could be mono because he has alot of those symptoms but it soesn't expain the abcesses. Doc mentioned lymphoma?????
