Evaluation by doctor: High WBC count is definitely abnormal. But different causes are there. Infections, inflammatory conditions, stress -physical & emotional, cancers -both blood related like leukemias and non blood related, drug induced WBC ct elevations. Need to know how high is the count , what are the associated symptoms, are there any sources of infections, on any steroids which for eg. Can show high WBC ct ecetera.
