Lymph Auto Blood
Differential Count: The test results should indicate the reference values for the percentage of lymphocytes for that particular laboratory in their automated differential count. If there is any question, the clinical pathologist can be requested to review the glass slide smear and verify or rectify the count. ...Read more
Did cbc blood, my auto lymph was 1.75 and ratio is 1.00-4.80. Is this in the standard norm or is it a mild low count, my dr say normal, concerned?
Normal: Need serial CBC and differential (from past and present) to really put in context. Lymphocyte count never means much by itself. In this range greatest likelihood is normalcy. Hence don't fixate on this one lab result like this (not useful unless extreme) as much as on a health concern. ...Read more
Hello. I had Labs conducted recently. Normal white and red blood levels but high Neut Auto (81%) and low Lymph Auto (12%). What does this mean?
Hi neutrophil %: Hello. I had Labs conducted recently. Normal white and red blood levels but high Neut Auto (81%) and low Lymph Auto (12%). What does this mean? ANS: means you likely have an infection but need more information such as age, ethnicity medical history. Best to ask ordering Dr. For interpretation. ...Read more
I had a complet blood test and it showd my neutrophil auto was at 34% and lymph auto at 51% eso autoat5% and now have been referred to a hemotoligist?
Need more info: The percentage of WBC types doesn't allow a hematologist much to help you with. The complete blood count including the total white blood count, the hemoglobin and platelet count are as important as the percentages of white blood cell types. Even more important is the history and symptoms of your situation. ...Read more
Had some blood work yesterday - Lymph Auto 18.5% Platelet 635 Thou/cc mm, RDW 14.9%, WBC 11.6% and BUN/CREAT 9.2. Either hot/sweaty or cold/chills.
A general question: Blood consists of cells and fluid (plasma). Cells are of 3 general types: white blood cells (which fight infection), red blood cells (which carry oxygen), and platelets (which initiate blood clots). Plasma and lymph carry proteins, such as antibodies. Anemia is the commonest disorder with many causes. Leukemia is a cancer of the wbcs. Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymph glands (nodes). ...Read more
Possibly nothing: It depends on how low. Lymphs are one of the types of cells that fight infection but in isolated general questions like this without numbers it is very hard to answer and usually a slightly low lymph count is meaningless. In your case if concerned asked your provider that ordered your test. ...Read more
Depends: This depends on so many factors hard to answer breifly. Typically? No. Sometimes, of great concern. Usuall method if in doubt is to repeat in a month or sooner if you for example, have some sort of symptoms you or your doc are concerned about. Everything from minor vial infections and colds to serious cancers can be associated with this. Fortunately, usually the former. ...Read more
It is 8:
You have to discuss with the doctor who ordered the test as we can not comment on only one value in cbc.We need to know why the test was ordered, what your symptoms are and what the other values are. Lymphocytes of 8 are low.
Causes of low lymphocytes are either body not making not enough lymphocytes or they get destroyed. Common causes are

My blood work every thing look normal but lymph is 49 is said high next to it...dr said not to worry is this some thing seriouse..
See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your doctor is likely correct in that an isolated lymphocyte count of 49% is not to be concerned about. Do pay attention to your doctor's advice for follow up care. ...Read more
CBC: Hi, it looks normal to me, the neutrophil count range could be from 1500-8000. ...Read more
Probably fine: This is nothing to worry about if your total white count is in range. Percentages fluctuate wildly in health. ...Read more
My lymph glands have lymoh nodes on them and I have to have a blood test. What would the blood test tell me?
Explanation: Enlarged lymph nodes, especially in the neck are usually due to an infection such as strep throat. Another common cause is infectious mononucleosis (mono). A blood test is usually done in this setting to prove that mono is the cause. If the nodes (lumps) don't go away and the mono test is negative, your dr. May consider x-rays or a biopsy to be explain the cause. You should make sure to follow-up. ...Read more
My absolute Lymph blood test is low at 0.6 (Normal is 0.7 to 3.1). Previous years it was 0.7 and 0.9. Other tests are normal. Is this serious?
Abnormal Blood Count: This would be considered a mild abnormality and does not necessarily raise any alarm signals. But, with the gradual decrease in the lymph count, a repeat CBC by your PCP at a later date may be helpful to determine if this is an ongoing process or something not clinically significant. ...Read more
Got new blood work monos is 8.8 and lymph is 20.4. should I be worried since I had stroke year ago?
Use HealthTap Prime.: I don't follow your question. If you've had a stroke in the past, you could be concerned about getting a 2nd, more debilitating stroke. However, blood tests like the monocyte count & lymphocyte count don't predict stroke risk. They check the immune system. 20% lymphocytes & 8.8% monocytes aren't outside the reference range for most labs, but as a count (per nL) it's high. Upload report on HT Prime ...Read more
FNAC cervical lymph node showing paucicellular smear showing blood only.... What is the meaning of this?
It sounds: Like the sample was not sufficient for diagnostic purposes, although nothing abnormal was present, a repeat biopsy may be indicated. Talk to your doc about next steps. ...Read more
Would a blood test show why my lymph nodes are swollen or would I need more tests to find out why the keep re-occurring?
No need for worry: All teenagers have lymph nodes. An active immune system is a sign of health. We hardly ever realize how many bugs, viruses, parasites we encounter through each day. Teens, being thin, often discover this. You are not sick. You are well. Breathe! ...Read more
4 year old child with a 3cm swollen auxiliary lymph node 3+weeks that is now matted. Blood looks good. Still growing. They don't want to do anything.
If your white blood count is normal, but your neut is 5 points below range, and lymph is 2 points above, is that bad? All else was perfect, feel fine.
Lab test variability: The upper and lower normal ranges for lab tests are determined by how far the value is from average, so 5% of people will be abnormal" in any particular lab test. So I ran 20 lab tests on anyone then at least one would be "abnormal", but you could still be totally healthy. In general, small shifts in lymphycytes & neutrophils less than 10% in an otherwise healthy person should not be worrisome. ...Read more
Hi good night... I am a student. I wanted to know what the diagnosis for this patient will be if the blood smear has a lymph count of 65 and mono 21?

Blood tests: There are a few diseases that leap out from blood tests. Most of the time, however, blood tests don't tell the doctor much on their own. These results fall into the second group, not very specific. Your doctor will need to relate them to the symptoms for which the tests were requested. ...Read more
Symptoms: Common presenting symptoms of blood cancer (leukemia) and lymph cancer (lymphoma) are weight loss, impaired immunity with infections, abnormal bleeding, enlarging lymph glands, and anemia with attendant fatigue and weakness. There may be fevers and sweats. None of these symptoms are specific and laboratory testing must be done to rule out more benign conditions and to make an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more
Lymph node mass: Lymph node mass worries me. Mass means tumor which may be cancerous or non-cancerous. Blood work up may be normal or abnormal, it does not matter. You need further work up to make a definitive diagnosis. See your doctor. ...Read more
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
