I read something about aching ribs being leukaemia

Thanks for sharing

This is a small cyst

Nothing to worry at all

Rib pain can be a muscular pain

It is unlikely to be leukemia if you don,t have any other symptoms like fever,bleeding from nose etc

Please do let me know if you have any other question

just a quick question how would I know if it is leukaemia??

With an acute leukemia usually there are symptoms like fever,bleeding,enlarged lymph gland etc

With chronic leukemia you can have enlarged spleen,fatigue,repeated infections and many other things

So I am sure that you don,t have leukemia

Please do let me know if you have any other question

If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
