Doctor insights on:
History of hnscc, rec'd radiation. Abs lymph is low 700 (850-3900 cells/ul), but abs neut is normal 3891 (1500-7800 cells/ul). Should i be concerned?
No, not really: If you feel well and are otherwise healthy, then this lymphocyte count is probably ok. It will fluctuate with time. So you need to be patient and keep an eye on it over the next 1-2 years. As long as it doe snot drop to less than 600, I would not be too concerned about it. ...Read more

What does it mean to have hives with high neutrophils low lymphosites high abs neut low abs lymph high WBC high ALT and ast?
Possible hepatitis: There are many causes of hives. Allergic reactions are the most common. Persistent hives might be from a medication, or an environmental allergen, for example. Infections can cause hives. The abnormal alt and ast can be a sign of viral hepatitis. Sometimes hepatitis will cause hives, especially in the early phase, before jaundice sets in. Chronic hives (more than 6 weeks) is more complex. ...Read more

The : The laboratories that are off are just a tiny bit off, the only ones that are significant are the hemoglobin and hematocrit, as these labs show anemia. Anemia can be caused by iron deficiency, and other causes of low blood count. Ask your doctor of recommendations for your anemia. ...Read more
Do i have leukemia with blood test results of WBC 14.6, neutrophil 81, lymphocytes 11.7 abs neut. 11.8 eosin 0.5?
Probably Not: Julia, to know for sure a pathologist should look at your peripheral blood smear and determine if any atypical lymphocytes or blasts are present. Usually an impedance CBC (coulter) machine flags a blood smear for atypical cells for review by pathologist. At that time, if atypical lymphocytes or blasts are present, flow cytometry of your blood may need to be performed. Dr Hilliard ...Read more

Depends on setting: The absolute neutrophil count can rise from an extreme life-threatening bacterial infection, and equally high from a cold shower. The clinical context is everything. Remember that reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. ...Read more

Lymph abs 3.48 k/Ul range is 1.0 k/Ul -3.4 k/Ul
Lymph % 66%
Any reason for concern?
Acute viral illness: I typically find that a low total white blood cell count that is a new finding, especially when also accompanied by an elevated lymphocyte percentage, and even more especially when neutrophil percentage is low, means you have (or had) some kind of acute viral infection. I would recheck the blood count with differential 2 – 4 weeks later to check for resolution. ...Read more
1M ago had physical, CBC showed WBC 3.6 Neut Abs 1.68. Re-tested, WBC 3.9, Neut Abs 1.58, Lymph Abs 1.9. Other values normal. Should I be concerned?
Not now: Slightly abnormal lab values without any symptoms (I assume since this was a physical?) or recent infections. It is more likely the labs normalize or stay consistent without adverse effects, but may still warrant subsequent testing at a follow up visit. ...Read more
13.7 wbc, absolute lymphocyte result of 3.6 range was 1.5 to 3.5 indicative of lymphoma? Neut. Abs. 9.2. Range 1.5 to 6.6. Doctor not worried But I am
Do not worry: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your WBC count is just above normal and mostly due to neutrophils, the latter suggest some infection rather than lymphoma. I am in agreement with your doctor. ...Read more
My dr did not explain any of this, means viral infection? Wbc10.7, rbc5.11, neut 87%, lymph7%, neut abs 9.4, lymph abs .8, all others norm. Mailed w/o explanations, just curious if normal. Mono neg.
Should be followed: I suspect you've met up with a virus or some other stressor. These may just be common, chaotic fluctuations in the counts of lymphs and neuts. Your physician will decide when to repeat the cbc; if you have no symptoms, your next annual office visit might be okay. If the low lymphocytes persist, a check for HIV would be in order. Best wishes. ...Read more

I've had bad lower back pain, no uti or infection found. Blood work wbc 14.9, neut abs 9.4, lymph abs 4.5 and crp of 5.8. What could cause this?
Mild leukocytosis: This can be due to multiple different factors and cannot be attributed to any one of these without a full medical history, physical exam and perhaps other studies. Isolated lab values without clinical relevance are most commonly impossible to interpret successfully. ...Read more
What does high mchc 36.1, high neuts (abs) 7.1 high monos (abs) 1.1 and high potassium 5.6 mean in my sons blood results he's 10 months old?
Nonspecific findings: These changes are close to normal values and may represent nonimportant nonsignificant findings. The only way to see if there is abnormality in the blood is to examine the peripheral blood smear and look at the leukocytes and red blood cells and platelets under the microscope the high potassium is the more problematic test result in should be re-checked in one month. ...Read more

Last 2 Cbc in order WBC 6.4,5.1 neutr 65%,72% lymphs 21%,19% does the fact that neut% went up to 72% have effect on my lymphs abs # to go down to 1.0?
Yes. Simple math.: If total WBC's count is fairly stable, pretend we have 10,000 WBCs, with 40% neutrophils and 30% lymphocytes, that means there are 4000 neut and 3000 lymph. The numbers are the machine's counting of what is in the blood. Likewise, if there are 1000 kids at school, 40% boys means 400 boys (if one leaves and is replaced by a girl, there will be 399 boys, or 39.9% boys, and 60.1% girls). ...Read more
