A working diagnosis: Whether you have a low-grade leukemia or other myeloproliferative / myelodysplastic syndrome. Many of these require no treatment and/or can be managed fairly easily. Since you are clever enough to have found healthtap, you will want to learn about your test results -- there will probably be a lot of gene studies and you'll be getting an education. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi, I need your opinion. My CBC indicates elevated basophils (0.11) and platecount (416). On the otherhand, urinalysis shows WBC 11-25 and RBC 3-5 hpf?

Recheck results: Hi Shariel - Your mildly elevated CBC results may not indicate a medical condition as normal values are based on population averages. I would recommend retesting to see if there is truly an issue. Your urinalysis is concerning for an infection and treatment should be considered. Thankfully your CBC did not indicate the infection had spread into your blood otherwise the neutrophils would be high. ...Read more

Hi!  I'm a long-time flonase user.  My cbc shows elevated wbc 13.0.  I'm seeing my pcp tomorrow.  What should I tell her?  Thank you!

Elevated WBC: An elevated WBC could be a normal response to a recent viral or bacterial infection. Flonase should have no effect on your white count. Review recent lab work as well as all current medications with PCP at appointment tomorrow. He or she should be able to offer insights into what might have caused elevated wbc. ...Read more

Not a screening tool: A CBC by itself is not a very good screening tool for cancer. The results you reported are not consistent with a blood cancer and beyond that it provides little evidence either way. If your listed anxiety disorder makes you worry continually about cancer, or anything else, work on the issue with a therapist who can confer with your doc to see if or when additional studies would be worthwhile. ...Read more

I have slightly elevated WBC consisting of high lymphocytes as well as high neutrophils for two CBC tests taken about a month apart. What can this be?

How do you FEEL?: Unless the absolute neutrophil count and/or the absolute lymphocyte count are quite far from their respective reference ranges, or abnormal cells are present, it means nothing. I've shot my neuts to almost 20,000 by taking a cold swim. The ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside, and counts fluctuate wildly even hour-to-hour. Stop worrying and focus on fitness. Cheers. ...Read more
