Patient :I have this sharp pain in my leg that is in my shin probably from the back of the knee half ways down the shin. This pain is kinda like a knife is jabbed into the back of my leg, I am a very tough girl and tolerate pain really well but I have never been in pain like this ( even when I fractured my arm) I am concerned because my 7 year old brother just beat leukaemia and he had similar symptoms when he was diagnosed (pain in ankle and bone). I am a 16 year old fema and I know it is not common for my age to develop leukaemia but i am very worried that It possibly could be. Do you have any idea on what it could be?
Thank you for writing to us.
You are susceptible to other types of leukemia. It may not be the same type of leukemia. But since you already have a case of leukemia in your family, I would recommend that you see a Doctor and confirm the diagnosis.
Hope this helps you.
