In reading this thread I'm wondering if printing is one of the occupations that has ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (2-butoxyethanol) or something from this family of chemicals. If so, and I do suspect so, there is a possibility that CLL and leukemias and similar cancers are caused by this chemical.

Enlarged organs as spleen and liver and gall bladder ... are often common place too. There is compensated hemolytic anemia starting up, if so, but because the bone marrow compensates for the loss of red blood cells, the counts can come in OK or borderline & usually nothing more is checked.

Could you ask your doctor to check the 'retic' ratio? and find out the size and shape of the red blood cells? For these who have shared, when did the fatigue set in? (That might be an indication of when this chemical exposure became too much) Also dark urine, chills, pale color, etc
