Numbers are just...: Numbers are just numbers. Without the whole picture, such as why was labwork done, why is somebody wondering about leukemia, etc., numbers usually cannot tell much. One can ask the ordering doctor if the results indicate a problem in the setting of her whole picture. That said, WBC's are counted in Thousands but RBC's are counted in Millions... you can post a question with the actual two numbers.
