See Dr. ASAP.: I don't know your history, but this looks like an example of a form of leukemia, particularly lymphocytic leukemia. Not only do your readings point to this, you also have fever and night sweats. You have a hx. Of mono and ebv, which can possibly do something like this, but you should see a dr. For a work-up, especially a CBC with diff to rule out anything worse. Don't wait for the hematologist!

Modestly low: Wbc and neutrophils. Not urgent unless you are having infection or mouth sores.

Needs evaluation.: Isolated low neutrophil count, without any symptoms and without anemia or abnormal platelet count can have many different causes, not necessarily cancer. Transient low WBC can be from infection. However, the presence of night sweats and fatigue, if persistent, and no infection, suggests something more serious. Have your doctor help you get a more urgent hematology consultation.
