Yes: This degree of lymphopenia is likley not significant giving its long history of being in this range. Some things that can cuase lymphopenia that can be overlooked include HIV, hepatitis, and other chornic viral infecitons.

Blood counts fluctuate during the day and certainly over a period of time. If your doctor who has seen you during the blood tests has noticed any illness or suspicion of illness, has he/she discussed this with you? Please discuss with your physician, and I hope you are well. I agree with Dr. Masiello's comments.
