Causes Of High Neutrophil Count
What would cause high neutrophil count and low lymphocyte count with a total wbc of 8? Is it cancer?!
No it is Not Cancer!: A WBC count of 8, made of neutrophils can not be cancer related. So you should not think about Cancer that much. If you feel well, you should ignore this report. If you want a more exact answer, then you need to send us the complete report of the numbers of cell in your CBC. ...Read more
Can prednisone cause high WBC count. Esp neutrophils at 9.6 k/ul and true lymphocytes at 4.5 k/ul? Wbc at 15k/ul. Is this mild or moderate elevation
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 results are in the normal range.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Probably normal.: Just about anything and everything. These numbers are not so abnormal. ...Read more
Context: I can drive my own neutrophil count to levels that would make my colleagues worry about leukemia simply by spending fifteen minutes swimming in the lake in march. High neutrophil counts may mean anything from stress of illness / life to serious infection to minor infection to leukemia. Your physician will agree that no number means anything in isolation. ...Read more
Hard to say: Any lab result gives a number that is compared to a range of normal. But even the extremes of "too high" can still be normal for an individual. If the result is a change, then a high neutrophil count makes me think of infection (since that is one of the bodies responses), inflammation, stress, reaction to medication or even cancer like leukemia. Talk with provider who ordered test to put in context. ...Read more
Might be a good?: For the doc who ordered the test (ideally). Alternatively your wife or you could try calling HealthTap prime, scanning the report and discussing with a doctor. Interpreting lab findings without clinical information often isn't possible, meaning why was the test done, what are the symptoms your wife had and what's the medical history...etc. ...Read more
CBC: You don't tell the total white blood cell count (WBC), but these numbers are generally indicative of a bacterial infection or an early viral infection. Knowing the symptoms and the rest of the blood count would be more helpful. :) ...Read more
Insufficient info: Don't know are those absolute numbers? Unlikely, kindly provide more info with reference ranges ...Read more
Need values: 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, it would help to have the actual values of these tests. The values may still be in the normal range though at the extremes of normal values. ...Read more
I am wondering what having a high % neutrophil count with a low % lymphocyte count means as every time I have a CBC done it shows this.
Absolute counts?: If both the absolute neutrophil count and the absolute lymphocyte count are within normal range, simply forget about it. It's you. Trust you are HIV negative. If the absolute lymphocyte count is below 1000, or the absolute neutrophil count consistently above 10000, a hematology consult might be in order. Glad you are proactive; best wishes. ...Read more
GENERALLY SPEAKING, is it true that a left shift combined with a high neutrophil count is more likely to be associated with an infection than an underlying malignancy? I appreciate that a definitive answer requires a bigger picture of medical info.
Yes: And thanks for knowing that it is only part of a big picture, best wishes ...Read more
What does a high neutrophil count & low lymphocytes & monocytes indicate? Neutrophil % (76 (. Anc (3.42), absolute lymph (0.95), absolute mono (0.05)
Probably nothing: Most adults have an absolute lymphocyte count of 1.6 x 10^3 or more, but it fluctuates chaotically. The stress of minor illness can drop it briefly in the absence of any other problem. Your physician can advise you depending on your health otherwise and may choose no follow-up. Everyone is wise to be checked occasionally for hiv. ...Read more
Dear Dr, I have low lymphocyte count and high neutrophil count. I am currently taking steroids. Is this normal? Also, I have elevated igG 2000mg/dL.
Low grade fever occur at incr freq from monthly to 1-2x/wk over past year w/no other symptoms & normal blood work except high neutrophil count. Ideas?
Where there's smoke: Where there's smoke, there's fire. The low grade fever and elevated white blood cell count suggest an ongoing inflammatory process. It could be an infection, such as infective endocarditis or osteomyelitis or an occult tumor...This is all speculation. You deserve to have a careful, thorough medical examination including a history, physical exam, blood and urine testing and perhaps other tests. ...Read more
Need more info.: It would be useful to know the actual values and also the levels of other blood components. It would be preferably to discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the test as s/he has more info on your health and lab tests need to be interpreted in the clinical context. ...Read more

What does a high RDW count 15.9, high WBC count 11.3, high neutrophil count 73.0, low lymphocyte count 20.3 mean or possibly indicate?
Nothing by itself: I've had my RDW that high just from frequent blood donations. Your absolute neutrophil count is probably high -- did you have a recent infection? A recent cold shower? As a lab specialist, I'm always reminding folks that the numbers by themselves mean nothing except in the context of the history and physical exam. If you feel well and the white cells aren't described as abnormal, don't worry. ...Read more
My 3 yr old has a very high neutrophil count, very low lymphocyte count, high sed rate, low hematocrit. What could be going on with him. Repeat labs?
Infection: The shift to neutrophils and away from lymphocytes occurs during the early stages of fighting an infection or fighting a bacterial infection. The sed rate is a nonspecific marker, that could be up w/infection, or lots of other things. The low hct doesn't fit well, unless just barely out of normal. In any case, at 3 yrs old, needs close exam by pediatrics. ...Read more
What could it mean that my spleen is enlarged, slightly high WBC & lymphocyte count, and slightly low platelet and neutrophil count. With symptoms.?
Fatigue for last 8 weeks. Blood test show I'm anemic (although I take iron) and my Neutrophil Count is high at 8500. No fever, just fatigue. Ideas?
Blood test result show high packed cell volume, high RBC, high WBC and high Neutrophil count what does it mean? With Hand Burning and oral thrush.
By itself, nothing: You're a young man and your somewhat high Hct may simply be you -- reference ranges are set so that several percent of folks fall outside on either end. Same for white count. The oral thrush, if proven, calls for a check for a few illnesses; the hands, a neuropathy workup perhaps. Labs are meaningful only in the context of clinical fnidings. Your physician owes you a full explanation. ...Read more
I am experiencing hip pain, difficulty walking and knee pain. The following also describe me: Joint stiffness, low WBC, 1.7 neutrophil count and high NRBC automated count 0.3 /100 WBC. I have MGUS, the doctor is not concerned.
UTI can be asymptomi: The UTI can be without symptoms but does not necessarily cause a low blood count. That woud be there for another reason. If is it an infection involving the kidney - we call this pyelonephritis and you can have fevers and elevated blood counts.

I have a elevated neutrophil count 10900 WBC 14 :5 could this b some type leukemia other parts of WBC r wnl I have had mono when I was 16?
Unlikely: The numbers you cite are likely a nonspecific stress response. It is not that elevated, and you are not going to have leukemia emerging if the other elements of your CBC are normal. An early victim of any leukemia is the platelet count, which declines because the leukemia takes up the room needed to build new platelets. ...Read more
Curious. Could 2mg of diazepam taken at 11:00pm have caused neutrophil count to be raised at 9:30am next morning? To 9.12 10^9/L? (Range:2.0-7.5). neutrophil count is raised it follows that WBC up?
Neutrophil count: I have never heard of diazepam increasing a person's neutrophil count. I would suggest getting it repeated or talking to your doctor. Usually, high neutrophil counts are due to inflammation or infection somewhere. Your doctor can sort it out with a few questions and exam. ...Read more
Elevated wbc (neutrophil) count for 3 ys. Wbc 12 to 15 thousand. Adult acne started at that time is the WBC a concern?
Might be: If you have persistent elevated WBC and neutrophils you need ot see a hematologist to make sure nothing else is going on, you need additional specialized tresting. ...Read more
What might be the cause of an abs. Neutrophil count of <500 (when all other bc counts are within normal ranges)? Is bone marrow biopsy the next step?
Routine FBC shows low white blood cell count (3.9 10*9/L) and neutrophil count (1.4). Everything else normal. Doctor not worried. What can cause this?
Just being alive: There's enormous variation in white blood cell counts from routine blood tests. Just being alive causes 3900 WBCs and 1400 neutrophils, meaning lots of people have these numbers. Numbers are just numbers. So, without the whole story, nothing interesting can be said or concluded about these two numbers. ...Read more
Neutropenia: The time it takes for neutrophils to recover depends on what caused the neutropenia to begin with. Some chemotherapy medications allow quicker recovery than others. If your neutrophil count is low because of chemotherapy, your oncologist can tell you when to expect improvement in your counts. ...Read more
Questionable info: It is very unlikely that you neutrophil count is 1. You may wish to provide the complete counts. Better yet discuss the matter with the doctor who ordered the test as all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context. ...Read more
