A CBC blood test would show a elevated White Count, which would require a bone marrow biopsy to evaluate the cause.  I have Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia,  and I felt fine.
I just went for a yearly routine blood test, and the doctor did not like my counts.  He immediately did a BMB on me to see what was going on, and thats how they found my CML.  That was back in 1998, and I am doing fine.  You did not give much information.
