What are Smudge Cells? Do they indicate CLL?
This is new to me, I have to go for another blood test in one week. If they still exist, then I will be referred to the oncologist

This will feel like a long week for you with the anxiety of waiting for the results of this second blood test. I can empathize with that feeling!
If it does reveal continued defective cells with the potential for Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia, the most common form of that blood cancer can be very slow to progress. Often patients can go years without any changes or treatment. A hematologist/oncologist will be able to evaluate your blood results and guide your from there. However, this next blood test may show everything returned to normal and all the concern was for nothing.
Is this something that was discovered in a routine physical or are you having symptoms?
Hi Renee, just following up. Did you have another blood test? Any updates?
