Hi emma,
I wish I was better at interpreting lab results.  Besides the swollen lymph nodes, has your daughter had any other symptoms?  Did her doctor seem concerned about her labs or mention further testing?

I imagine that you are incredibly worried...having children of my own I truly understand that.  I should have been a little more clear with my last post.  Has she had any symptoms such as frequent fevers or extreme weight loss?  Also, how long has she had the swollen lymph nodes?

Low grade fevers along with swollen lymph nodes can be something serious, and the length of time that the nodes have been swollen are concerning.  You might inquire about doing a biopsy of the nodes.  This is the most definitive way to diagnose blood cancers (if that is truly what her doctor is concerned about).

Yes, it is quite common to have normal blood work with blood cancers.  It often doesn't get skewed until disease has advanced.  Good luck and I hope you get some answers soon.
