Relative: Your actual lymphocyte count or the absolute lymphocyte count is calculated as a actual number by multiplying 48% with the white blood cell count, which is usually a number in thousands. Even if the final count is abnormal any further decisions as what to do should be related to your doc to further discuss with you best approach going forward.
