What does mild leukocytosis with a slight increase in neutrophils (about 7% band neutrophils) and neutrophils have slightly increased granulation mean?

Elevated numbers: Said in another way: a white blood cell count the is slightly higher than normal levels. Within the group of white blood cells there is a slightly higher than normal proportion of neutrophils. 7% are young neutrophils. This result may (eg bacterial) or may not (eg stress response) suggest an infection since there is no clinical context. Try rephrasing the question with symptoms included in it. ...Read more

What does a drop on neutrophils mean?

Usually nothing: The absolute counts of neuts, lymphs and their teammates vary tremendously even from hour to hour. Unless the absolute lymphocyte count drops below 1000, it's not even interesting.

I have high absolute neutrophils.  Whats this mean?

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.

Neutrophils : Neutrophils are white blood cells that help to fight bacterial infections. The absolute neutrophil count (anc) is used to assess how many neutrophils a person has. A count that is too low can put you at risk for bacterial infections. A high count can indicate that your body is fighting an infection, or can be from an inflammatory injury such as a burn, heart attack or appendicitis. People who do not have a spleen also can have a higher than normal anc. It can even be caused by medications (such as steroids) or stress. Very rarely a high anc can indicate malignancy such as chronic myelogenous leukemia, but people usually have other signs and symptoms, also. Because of this very wide range of high anc causes, the context in which the test was ordered and how high it actually is is very important. If you are worried about your test result, call the doctor that ordered the test and ask what they were looking for and if your high anc is a concern. ...Read more
