Left Shift On Blood Smear With Normal Cbc
During yearly blood check up, my 7 year old son CBC came back normal with few atypical lymphocytes found in blood film , is this normal ?
Probably fine: If the entire blood count is normal except for a "few atypical lymphocytes" then it most likely is a perfectly normal blood count. Check with your doctor and see his/her degree of concern and whether a repeat count is necessary sooner than a year Could be due to a recent viral exposure. the problem with doing blood tests as a screen in healthy people is that you find mild changes that mean 0 ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have a normal cbc (wbc 8.5 rbc 4.1 plt 331) but have noticed random petechia on legs and chest. Doctor confirmed. What cause this with normal cbc?
Vascular fragility: Petechiae can be due to low platelet count (which you do not have) or fragile blood vessels, as may happen with increased corticosteroid hormones. If you are overweight, losing weight would help. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
I did cbc blood wbc was 4.5 on my paper said low, and range 4.8-10.8 also said leukopenia present , dr, said complete normal test, what is norm wbc?
Your WBC is normal: Any WBC count between 4 thousand to 10 thousand is considered normal. The computer likes to be exact but medical values vary, and have a broad range, which I have spelled out for you. You are fine right now. But why did you have a CBC done in the first place? Avoid getting tests done, unless the doctor suspects something to be wrong!! Otherwise you can create unnecessary anxiety! ...Read more

My blood test showed high (only just within normal range) nucleated red blood cells should I worry? Went with chest, back and stomach pain.
No worry: If rest of the test results were normal, a few nucleated red cells is not a reason to worry. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Abnormal blood work. Low wbc, rbc, and platelet. Normal being 4.5 mine 2.0 CT scan enlarged spleen and liver. What are my next steps?
Blood test results show lymphocytes at 46 when normal is 20-40. Everything else (white and red blood cell count normal). Should i be worried?
Lymphocytes: There is always some variation in counts , what is "normal" is what falls within the 95% confidence interval of average. So some "normals" will fall above or below the range. Would not worry if no symptoms, no atypical lymphocytes, may consider repeating in 2-3 months to get the pattern. Follow up and discuss with your doctor as well. ...Read more

3.16 WBC count. Back pain, fatigue. Normal ct, labs ( blood work) came back great for a woman my age. So why is my WBC low? Is this a low-normal?.
It can be: The normal range is roughly 4-10.5. The differential is important. If the neutrophils are over 40% and you are not having recurrent infections or mouth sores, more work up may not be needed. If clinical concern, a bone marrow biopsy and aspiration could be performed, but very low yield given what we know so far. ...Read more

Node on the back of my neck that enlarges at night and gets smaller. CBC showed high normal RBC, hematoctrits, hemoglobin. Noticed bruises on arm leg?
Keep an eye on it: Benign enlargement of neck nodes is not uncommon. Unless it is growing in size and becomes larger than 1 Cm, I would ask you to ignore it. Do not check it daily as your own fingers pressing and poking on it will cause trauma and make the lymph node larger. So check it once every 1 or 2 weeks and take note of size. Bruises are of no consequence unless your platelet count is 150k) ...Read more
