Sometimes : Many things contribute to developing breast cancer. Only about 10% of breast cancer are inherited. Others are brought on by other factors. “Environmental” effects we are aware of that contribute to the risk of breast cancer include alcohol consumption, obesity, radiation to the breast (especially at young age such as to treat Hodgkin disease), and estrogen consumption (as in hormone replacement)

Could be normal : Hard to say from the information, but the range of normal listed is for Caucasians, people of African descent have normally lower white blood cells. Also, it is important to look at the levels of the individual white cell types, neutrophil count should be greater than 1.5, lymphocyte count greater than 1.0. If these are okay, I wouldn’t worry. If it is really low, best to see a hematologist.

A 47-year-old female asked:

Likely nothing: Monoclonal B cell lymphocytosis is a small population of malignant lymphocyte in the blood. A level of 0.4% is tiny, and likely not going to turn into anything bad. However, these cells are the type that make up chronic lymphocytic leukemia (in far higher numbers)and small lymphocytic lymphoma. It would be good to rule out lymphoma, and follow blood counts every 3-6 months. No treatment needed.

thank you for helping. it seems to me that if they know that the tumors are filling her lungs, they would give her oxygen for when she needs it, not after she can't breathe.
