Not high at all: Leukemia is a word that means "white blood". Originally leukemia was recognized when the white blood count was very high. However, as we develop a better understanding, we know that leukemia can be associated with a very low, normal, or high white blood cell count. What is important is the process going on in the bone marrow. ...Read more
If you had normal white blood cell count & all other normal bloodwork several months ago is it possible you could have leukemia anyway?
White blood cell count 16.95 at week 39 preg appt. Doc casually mentioned leukemia. Any other ideas? Second child, first there was no elevated levels
Confusing data: In most circles a white blood count of 16.95 would mean 16, 950 cells per microliter with a expected range of 4500-10, 000.Pregnancy is known to cause an elevation of the WBC level. If the count were above 100, 000 I would consider that a possibility & rarely it could be at a lower level. Why the diagnosis was even brought up in that setting is confusing. I suspect the doc has some explaining to do. ...Read more
If you have a CBC with differential and the only thing abnormal is the high white blood cell count can you dismiss luekemia for the most part?
My 13 yr old daughter got a white blood cell count of 3.6 come in yesterday and her uncle passed away at 18 with luekemia Should we go do more tests n?
The WBC count alone: Doesn't give us enough information to give you the proper answer to this. When the WBC count was done, there should have been what's called a differential, which is important for that type of diagnosis. Would also need to know more about her health and why the labwork was done. Please recontact one of us through HealthTap Prime, where we can do a better consult...and discuss with her doctor. ...Read more
4, 000 - 10, 000: This is somewhat dependent on ethnicity. The normal range for caucasions is 4, 000 - 10, 000/ cubic millimeter. People of color (blacks and asians) tend to have a lower wbc, and their normal may go down to 3, 000. The most prevelent WBC is a neutrophil, and there should be at least 1500 neutrophils for all ethnicities. ...Read more

Does having hsv2 cause your white blood cell count to be slightly higher? Mine is at 11.3 when the range is 7-10.
Had a routine blood test. 28 year old female. White blood cell count is 9.8. Good range said 3.3 to 9.4. Atypical Lymphs is 5. Any cause for concern?

My white blood cell count is 5.9 (with normal range of 4 and 11). I used fluticasone propionate inhaler for a month. Could this interfere with results?
Unlikely: Considering your results, it's unlikely. But one way to learn more is to look at what's called the differential on that test. It lists a series of white blood cell types, including one called neutrophils. Steroids typically increase this level, so if if you look at your test and see a high neutrophil level, this could be due to the steroids. ...Read more
