High Neutrophil Count
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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.
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
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
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
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
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 have a high WBC count. HIGH neutrophils count 0.77 and low lymphocyte count 0.3, what does it mean?
How high is WBC: Depending on how high the WBC is, the findings are suggestive of an infection most likely a viral one. However rarely can a diagnosis be made with just blood test results alone. ...Read more
Neutrophilia: High percentages of neutrophils seen in the differential WBC count can be due to viral infections, but are more commonly associated with bacterial infections, if due to infection. These are laboratory findings which must be interpreted in combination with the clinical picture and other lab and imaging studies. ...Read more
It can- see your MD: You should see your md, have yourself checked properly, get further testing- blood works and an imaging on the abdomen/pelvic area at least. It could be cluster of symptoms from a condition or they could be separate problemssome cancer-either blood or solid cancer-like kidney cancer- can give you the above symptoms-however other causes-eg- infection/vasculitis/autoimmune should be considered too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
