Why did you test?: Why did you get blood count test done? If you don‘t have any symptoms and you just have this test as a "routine", this is precisely the problem you get: worry about nothing. It is not recommended to just do a blood count test as part of check up when there is no problem. Smoking is not indication for the test. Ask your doctor what to do next, but I personally wouldn‘t worry about it. Quit smoking.
