Doctor insights on:
If Your Wbc Is Above 10 What Does That Mean
See below...: It usually means infection but other causes are also possible. It would be important to know what the differential count shows and what is the exact cell type causing the increase. Discussing these results with your doctor is recommended. ...Read more
What does it mean if your WBC is low and your lymphs are high and neutrophils are low what does this mean?
Ask your doctor to e:
Your doctor is expected to explain what numbers of wmc/neutrophils you have and what it means. I would need to know the actual numbers to be able to interpret this information in your case. Get to know what is normal and what is low and how low it is?
Normal WBC count is between 4, 000 to 10, 000 and about half of these numbers should be neutrophils. What are your numbers? ...Read more
Unlikely...: First, WBC counts of 10k vs. 11k are essentially the same. Such a modest difference is unlikely to be clinically significant. However, more important could be the change in the differential. For example, a significant rise in neutrophil percentage accompanied by a fall in lymphocytes could give nearly the same total WBC count yet indicate profoundly different clinical scenarios. Need more info. ...Read more
What dose it mean when your WBC high at 12.6 my segmented neutrophils is high 88.5 my lymphocytes is low 6.9?
Not very high: But the high neutrophils suggest that you do have an infection somewhere. ...Read more
What does it mean when your WBC is 13.5 thousand/Mcl and Rdw 15.2%, neutrophils 7820 cells/Mcl, lymphocytes 4280 cells/mcl, and monocytes is 1020?
Nothing: These labs mean nothing in the absence of a clinical history of illness. If you feel well, and there are no abnormal cells reported, ignore them. I can scramble my CBC even more spectacularly after enjoying a cold-water swim. As a pathologist who's devoted my life to lab medicine, I know how to look for disease in lab values, and when not to. If you're not sick, these labs are meaningless. Relax. ...Read more
Varies: If a patient has leukemia (white blood cell cancer) it may be very high, in the 100ks. It could also be low with the same diagnosis. Solid tumors can sometimes elevate the WBC if they get necrotic or infected but if the patient is on chemo, they may be low or normal. Confused enough? In a nutshell, it depends on the situation. ...Read more
LOW WBC: You should know why it is low and if it is pathology or normal variation. If it is from a marrow problem, you need to find out what that is. If it is from treatment, it may or may not be indicated. One needs to establish a diagnosis not treat a sign or symptom. ...Read more
What is possible if your WBC, neutrophil absolute, and neutrophil % is high, and lumphocytes are low?
Usually benign: There are many causes for an increased white count and increased neutrophils, but the most common is an infection. The more concerning causes for increased WBC are ususally associated with other blood cell abnormalities, such as immature or abnormal-looking WBCs. If the WBC is very high, it should be rechecked to make sure it goes back down to normal. ...Read more
Lab data: This is quite non-specific insofar as the info you have provided. It may not be due to infection, and many other things can elevate the neutrophile counts, including any inflammation, trauma, leukemia, and so on. You need to provide your symptoms and the remainder of the CBC values for this to have any meaning. ...Read more
If you had a severe infection, would you expect your WBC count to be closest to 5, 000 or 15, 000/mm3?
See below: Usually 15000 but rarely can have low white blod cell count. ...Read more
In blood work what does it indicate if your WBC is 13.0, pmn 10.1, and sodium is 133 everything else is normal.
What types of cancer will typically elevate your wbc? Some? All? Cbc useful in ruling out cancer?
Need more: Info here. Many leukemias will have an elevated wbc, but also could be up as a "reactive" change with solid tumors, or tumor associated infection. ...Read more
Not K but yes L: Lithium characteristically raises white blood cell count by increasing bone marrow production. However, there are many other causes of increased WBC count. Further investigation is warranted. Klonopin (clonazepam) does not typically raise WBC count but can cause a dangerous drop in WBC count, very rarely. ...Read more
Yes: The white blood cell (WBC) count is unrelated to colon cancer risk or presence. Colon cancer can be screened for by a variety of tests including stool blood (fob), stool dna, colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, and virtual colonoscopy. See your md for screening recommendations individualized to you. If you have symptoms that is not screening, but diagnostic. ...Read more
May or may not: Depends upon the extent of the infection. Your fatigue can have numerous causes, including electrolyte imbalance, severe infection, and so on and so on. You need to discuss with the doctor treating you. Good luck. ...Read more
Can a cold virus lower your WBC and neutriphil count? I am in chemo, finished first cycle adf my neuts are 1.2 but I have had a cold for a week.
What illness would cause your wbc, platelets, and neutrophils to be low and lymphocytes to be high and then switch after a couple months?
Your WBC increases with polycythemia because the bone marrow is so hyperactive. So why are you more at-risk for infections?
Wrong cells: In polycythemia [ increased red cells] can ocur for a number of reasons. You are at risk for complications of whatever disorder caused the increase in RBCs. Conditions such as, pulmonary fibrosis, at times COPD a connection between the great vessels of the body, a vascular shunt, some drug reactions, and true polycythemia in which the bone-marrow makes too many RBCs. ...Read more
