Do leukaemia patients have high wbc count or low wbc count?

Do leukaemia patients have high wbc count or low wbc count?

Usually: Leukemia is by definition a primary tumor of the blood-forming elements. If the cancer remains confined to the bone marrow, and the abnormal cells do not enter the blood ("aleukemic"), then the white count is often low because healthy cells are crowded out of the marrow. If the abnormal cells do spill over, the count is often high. The key is often that the cells look abnormal. ...Read more

I have an elevated sedimentation rate, elevated white blood cell count, elevated absolute neutrophils, elevated absolute lymphocytes, & low iron level?

How do you FEEL?: If the white cell values are not extremely out of range, and all are well formed, I would not worry about them. Iron is more worrisome as even without anemia, low values can war of poor nutrition or bleeding from an uncertain or tumor. Nobody here can really tell you much more than that we are glad you are amtaking an active role in understanding your health. ...Read more

What causes low lymphocytes and MCV , high neutrophile percentage fluctuating low platelet count for one year ? No bacteria or viral infection detect.

What causes low lymphocytes and MCV , high neutrophile percentage fluctuating low platelet count for one year ? No bacteria or viral infection detect.

White blood cells: are comprised mostly of neutrophils and lymphocytes. If the number of lymphocytes are low then percentage of neutrophils will naturally be high, even though there numbers are normal. Viral infections (HIV and others) are a common cause of low lymphocyte counts. From a practical standpoint, it may not be necessary to test for the other types of infection if the counts are not dangerously low. ...Read more

If low hemoglobin effects the high count of lymphocytes?

Dr. Liawaty Ho Dr. Ho
1 doctor agreed:

Not really: Anemia does not cause elevation of lymphocytes...However the anemia and lymphocytosis may be related as those two may be caused by a particular blood disorder. For instance in a case of chronic lymphocytic leuekemia. When this chronic leukemia becomes more progressive and the cancer burden is becoming higher , anemia can happen.Mhowever, in majority other cases those 2 are not related. D/w md. ...Read more

Can CML cause cyclic thrombocytopenia , but normal WBC and RBC in adult male patient?

Can CML cause cyclic thrombocytopenia , but normal WBC and RBC in adult male patient?

CML cyclic thrombocytopenia: Yes, multiple variations exists on this topic. Recently, a number of patients has been reported who presented de novo with the acute blastic crisis of CML.4.9 This type of leukemia was confirmed by the presence of a Ph1 chromosome in bone marrow metaphases. These patients apparently never had the 3- to 4-year phase of overproduction of marrow myeloid elements which typifies the usual case of CML. These observations suggest that CML can manifest itself as a highly variable clinical picture. One extreme is represented by the patient who presents de novo with the blastic cell crisis, the other by the patient who shows a prolonged phase of leukocytosis periodically interrupted by a spontaneous or chemotherapeutic induced remission. The current patient, although presenting with an infrequently recognized stage of this disease, would suggest that the evolution of CML may be characterized by a chronic relapsing and spontaneously remitting course ...Read more

Blood tests show high mean platelet volume, low platelet count, high urobilinogen, high WBC, high clumpy platelet morphology. Related? conerns?

Why the tests?: 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 might have helped to have the actual values rather than high and low. Why were the tests done? It would be prudent to discuss these with the doctor who ordered the test as s/he knows more about your health. 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.

Low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts?

Means nothing alone: In isolation from the patient story, lab tests mean nothing. This is especially true since we have no actual numbers. The low MCV and high rbc would make any physician think of a thalassemia, but it would be criminal to speculate further without knowing more about the person. If this is a you or a family member, you have a right and a duty to request your doctor's thoughts, or get consultation. ...Read more

Cbc: low WBC (3.39), low neutrophils (36%), high lymphs (57%). Also something called poikilocytosis and ovalocytes in blood.  Is this concerning?

Probably not: Wbc is low and absolute neuts about 1000 (3.39 x 36%). If no infection or mouth sores i would not be too excited. Repeat labs. Could just be a passing viral infection or it could just be you. African americans and those of northern european ancestry often run a lowish wbc. Poik and oval is just some variation in rbc shape. ...Read more
