Depends: This depends upon what is abnormal. If the percentages of lymphs are low and monos high, it is likely that some stress has caused an increase of cortisol level, driving both of these changes. If the absolute levels of these cell types are abnormal, there could be a more serious infection or a bone marrow disorder that requires further investigation.
