My 17 yearold has Wbc 2.5, low segs, high lymph, low mvc, low mch. Normal RBC and hemo and hcrt. Been referred to Hemo/onc specialist. Why?

For answers

Medical_oncology
Your child has some abnormalities in his blood work that your child's doctor can't explain. A hematologist/oncologist is a specialist in blood diseases and is better suited to identify why these abnormalities exist. I would not let it worry you; just go and see what the specialist has to say.

28y/o female w/PMH Hashimoto's thyroiditis. CBC WNL except elevated segmented Neutrophils 73.3 (42.0-71.0) and low lymphocytes 17.8 (24.0-44.) Prob?

Probably Not

Women
The number of each kind of WBC you have is in constant flux and changes depending on many different things. There is likely nothing pathological about your numbers and will likely be normal upon recheck.

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.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

2yr old cbc showed cytoplasmic vac toxic gran, micro2+ in October. Cbc in June showed low lymph and elevated mono but no smear. Should i still worry?

Lab data

Complete_blood_count
You cannot follow lab results without a full understanding of their relationship to the clinical situation for which they were ordered. Cytoplasmic vacuoles and toxic granulations in WBCs may be present at a moment in time when neutrophils are helping to clear foreign materials from the body. Not sure what you are worried about, but doubt there is a necessity to continue. Be happy. Best

Needs follow-up

Platelet
Prolonged PTT can be a transient phenomenon after "viral" infection. expected normalized within 6 weeks. If prolongation persists beyond that period, further work-up would be prudent.
