Would high granulocytes, monocyctes, neutrophils, and low lymphocytes/100cells point towards cancer? Two blood tests in past 2 yrs have these results.

Would high granulocytes, monocyctes, neutrophils, and low lymphocytes/100cells point towards cancer? Two blood tests in past 2 yrs have these results.

Blood test: To place your test results in a better perspective, discuss them with your provider and/or see a hematologist. Avoid the guessing game.

What would high lymphocytes and low granulocytes indicate?

What would high lymphocytes and low granulocytes indicate?

Probably nothing: Are you talking percents or absolute numbers? Is the total WBC count normal? It is not uncommon or significant to have a high lymph percent and low neut percent.

What does high neutrophil & low lymphocyte count mean?

What does high neutrophil & low lymphocyte count mean?

It depends: One cannot look just at lynphocyte and neutrophil percentages. It must be interpreted in the context of the total white blood cell count.

Does high neutrophil and low lymphocyte point to leukemia or lymphoma?

Does high neutrophil and low lymphocyte point to leukemia or lymphoma?

No: Anyone who told you to worry about the minor fluctuations in your white count did you a serious disservice. Please forgive my frankness. Leukemia will announce itself by very abnormal cells in your blood. Lymphoma is a mass or obvious illness. At age 18, focus on learning, career, becoming a tough adult and be thankful for good health. Study the real science, not the scare stuff.

High neutrophil count (61) and low lymphocyte count (30) for 6 years old boy?

High neutrophil count (61) and low lymphocyte count (30) for 6 years old boy?

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. :)

Sir. What drug can I take if my differential count in CBC is abnormal, my lymphocyte is low and my neutrophil is high. Thanks.?

Sir. What drug can I take if my differential count in CBC is abnormal, my lymphocyte is low and my neutrophil is high. Thanks.?

No drug: Sometimes, abnormal CBC differential can be a variation. If CBC differential is truely abnormal, we need to find out what the underlying causes are. Is it due to infection, inflammation or other blood conditions? Once we know the causes, we can treat them accordingly as indicated. No drug to treat numbers, and never treat numbers, TREAT PATIENTS.

My neutrophil and monocyte are slightly low and lymphocyte is slightly high. What could it mean? Segmented neutrophil: 34.70, lymphocyte: 59; RDW: 15

Means nothing: These fluctuate wildly hour-to-hour. Unless they are way out of reference range, they mean nothing as long as all the cells appear basically normal.

%lymphocytes is high (52%) and %immature granulocytes is low (38%) but rest of CBC is normal - should I be concerned? I am 65 y/o female.

%lymphocytes is high (52%) and %immature granulocytes is low (38%) but rest of CBC is normal - should I be concerned? I am 65 y/o female.

Possibly but: But only if this is a persistent finding since the profile is also compatible with a current viral infection. I would repeat the test in a month. If the finding is similar, then you need to talk to your doctor re. Whether a hematology consult is needed. It would have been more informative if you had given us the actual WBC count instead of just a %.

Hello my son has low granulocytes and high lymphocytes, plus High red blood count and high pottasium. His IGE is also high. That does this indicate?

Hard to say: To get the most from this site, we need you to provide background information like symptoms/duration/age. When you cite lab values we need to know why it was obtained. This is not a chat room & your questions are never linked. From what you provided this may be normal for the situation or a simple lab variation/error.

Lab reports;lymphocytes (low) 46.6 and granulocytes (high) 39.5. All other lab report blood/urine excellent. Should I be worried. Great physical shape?

Lab results are...: Lab results are just numbers. The doctor who ordered the tests can explain the results. Lymphs of 46.6% and grans of 39.5%, in a normal person, sounds ok.

Is this important in the clinical pic of upper ab pain and fatty stools? High Neutrophils High Monocytes Low Lymphocyte High Immature Granulocytes (3)

Is this important in the clinical pic of upper ab pain and fatty stools? High Neutrophils High Monocytes Low Lymphocyte High Immature Granulocytes (3)

Blood test results: Upper abdominal pain and fatty stools may be due to gall bladder disease. High neutrophils and monocytes, low lymphocytes and high immature granulocytes may not mean that much in the context of your symptoms, but may be consistent with an infection. You should ask your doctor for more guidance.

My CBC blood test shows high Granulocyte 77.2 my lymphocyte is low 15.7 is this worrisome? I do have Gastritis that is relenting blood in stool.

My CBC blood test shows high Granulocyte 77.2 my lymphocyte is low 15.7 is this worrisome? I do have Gastritis that is relenting blood in stool.

No: White cell percentages mean nothing and I wsj they were not even reported. If the absolute values were anywhere near reference range, and all the cells looked okay, you are fine.

Low LYMPHOCYTE % 15 % L High WHITE BLOOD CELL 24.8 k/cumm H GRANULOCYTE # 19.8 k/cumm H Low MONOCYTE % 3 % L HEMATOCRIT 39.4 % L HEMOGLOBIN 13.9 gm/dL L High SEGMENTED NEUTROPHIL % 80 % H High SED RATE 18 mm/hr H?

What's your question: A blood test isn't a patient; you are. You didn't just wander into a phlebotomy office and make an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the CBC for a reason. What was the reason? Also, please repost with the discussion you had with your doctor about the significance of these results; or if you have not asked your doctor, please state why not.

4 yr old has pink eye and ear infection. Labs show low lymphocytes (.9), RDW-SD 11.7, MPV 6.4, (both below range), granulocytes % high but abs cnt norm?

Cbc: You didn't give the total white blood count but for me this signifies either and early viral infection or a low greade bacterial infection. The RDW and mpv are red blood cell indices and are inconsequential as related to this infection

High neutrophil (90) and low lymphocytes during my 7 month of pregnancy what does it mean? Do I need to worry?

High neutrophil (90) and low lymphocytes during my 7 month of pregnancy what does it mean? Do I need to worry?

Do not worry: Normal pregnancy is associated with a rise in the percentage of neutrophils (and thus a decreased percentage of lymphocytes). Since your neutrophilia has been present throughout your pregnancy it is most likely physiologic. One must wonder about an infectious cause and if you have been having fever or signs of a urinary tract infection, please see your obstetrician. If not, relax.

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.
