I have recently collected alot of data of the cancer patients in north India. To my surprize I figured out that most of the tumor patients have developed Leukopenia and in general the lymophocyte count were reduced in almost all cancer types I took. Is it A generalized mechanism for escaping the immune surveillance by the tumor or is it the Counter response of the tumor progression that peripheral circulation is showing alterations in their pattern as lymphocytes and neutrophils might be irected towards the site of tumor progression?
The tumors in question are epithelioid or carcinomas of lung, breast and ovary?
