Review blood count: This is a difficult question to answer without more information. Are there underlying medical conditions? Lung disease, smoking, medications? It would be nice to see the blood count.

Unknown: I'd need actual numbers of wbc's, hemoglobin and hct to even guess.I think your dr is following a prudent path-these things often are a brief abnormality that disappears on retesting.But your pcp is retesting;you must comply!
