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.

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
