Dr. Kelty R. Baker answered:

Should I worry about high lymphocytes, low neutrophils, low WBC and high AST?

Neutropenia

Open-uri20120802-17085-19716yx
Low WBC plus low neutrophils is known as neutropenia. You don't really have high lymphocytes - you have to have100% of something so the lymphocytes appear proportionately higher since the neutrophils are low. You need to see a hematologist to determine the cause of & treatment for your low white cells. Please see my earlier posts on this topic for more information.

Probably not

Leukemia
High and low all relative. Is this percentage? What is total WBC? How high are platelets? Without numbers hard to say much more

Dr. Amy Deeken answered:

Childs lab showed a high % lymphocytes, low % neutrophils but absolute values for both were normal. No blasts/atypicals, all else in perfect range.

Absolute counts

Blood_count
Are the most important when evaluating blood count results. It is always important to evaluate labs in the context of patient complaints and symptoms. If they are normal range, and there are no blasts or abnormal cells, then most likely nothing to worry about. These may be the child's normal range or a mild virus.

High Lymphocytes, low Neutrophils. No symptoms, except gland on the left side of my neck gets swollen when I get little or no sleep due to studying. Slightly tender. Blood work listed under symptoms. ?

Stop worrying

Blood
You're a 22 year old man, almost every guy your age has at least one node like you do and usually two or more (I have 3 right now), and if you feel well, let me reassure you that if no weird-looking white cells were found in your blood and the absolute counts weren't preposterously out of range, they're life's fluctuations. I shot my WBC to 20000 after a 15 minute cold shower. Cheers.

I have high lymphocytes, low neutrophils, normal WBC (4900) and normal sed rate. I'm scared to death I have cancer. I had a corneal transplant 4 months ago and use steroidal eye drops 4 times a day. The blood tests were discovered because I felt like I

Take a deep breath! Call your doctor and explain your anxiety about these laboratory findings; he or she will be able to give you more information pertinent to you than any of us can here on this board. However, from what you describe, it seems very unlikely that you have cancer. There are many benign causes of changes in the numbers of lymphocytes and neutrophils. The necessary evaluation depends on whether the absolute numbers of these cells, the ALC and ANC, respectively, are changed or whether it is only a relative percentage difference from the norm without any significant changes in the absolute numbers of these cells. These changes can be caused by medications, an infection, thyroid changes, and even autoimmune changes. If the results persist, you may want to ask your doctor for a referral to a hematologist to get to the bottom of the matter and put your mind at ease.

High lymphocytes (58%), low neutrophils (33%), and atypical lymphocytes: 2. No symptoms except for infrequent neck gland swelling. Cause for concern?

The percentages

Strength_training
Are not important. One needs to see the total WBC to comment. This is probably of no consequence

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

What does low wbc count, high lymphocyte count and low neutrophil count indicate?

Need more info.

Cbc-wbc_count
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.

Dr. Holly Maes answered:

Can chronic sinituitis be viral and cause high lymphocytes 52% n low neutrophils 33% absolute #'s were in normal range though? Scared of cancer

Numbers fine

Cancer
Those numbers are fine for your lymphocyte and neutrophil percentages. You can have virus infections that hold on for a while causing symptoms, but more likely the chronic symptoms are caused by allergies. I would work with your doc or and ENT to determine cause of your chronic symptoms, and then add if an allergist if felt to be allergic in nature.

4 y/o's labs showed slightly high lymphocytes w/slightly low neutrophils. All other values normal, no sign of illness at draw. Terrified it is cancer.

Lymphocytosis

Cancer
This is not uncommon to see a slight lymphocytosis in children. I would probably repeat a CBC in 3 months but nothing to worry. It is not cancer.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

Can a elevated wbc (14.1) high neutrophils (69%) low lymphocytes (23%) & large lymph nodes indicate cancer?

Possible, but...

Cancer
Without knowing more specifics of how the patient is doing clinically as well as the results of other blood tests (like the rest of the CBC), infection would be more likely with this picture (especially the elevated neutrophils). There are definitely other tests that could be performed if cancer was more of a concern, if this was warranted.
