Lymph nodes neck swollen and low WBC count?

Lymph nodes neck swollen and low WBC count?

Not enough info....: But worth being vigilant about. The swollen nodes could indicate an infection, and often this can be accompained by count abnormalities such as a reduced WBC count from transient marrow suppression. If your symptoms don't resolve spontaneously over the next few days, or you develop new symptoms/signs that suggest other blood cell lineages are affected, you should see your dr. ...Read more

CTshows Spleen 17cm ,small Axillary Lymph nodes, retroperitoneal lymph nodes& mesentric lymph node noted, normal blood count &bone marrow,no infection?

Many possibilities: The combination of enlarged spleen and internal lymph nodes could be any of several infections (mononucleosis, syphilis, HIV, and several others, of course depeding on risk); inflammatory conditions like sarcoidosis; various malignancies like lymphoma and others. The doctor(s) who have been evaluating this problem and requested the CT scan are the only ones who can answer accurately. Good luck. ...Read more

Wbc:24.6 Neutrophil:21 Lymphocytes: 77 Swollen lymph nodes, night and day sweats, exhaustion. Lymphoma or leukemia??

Wbc:24.6 Neutrophil:21 Lymphocytes: 77
Swollen lymph nodes, night and day sweats, exhaustion. Lymphoma or leukemia??

Probably: Often it's semantic. If the lymphocytes are found first in the blood, it goes into the "leukemia" category; if in a lymph node, "lymphoma". Well differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma / chronic lymphocytic leukemia are two faces of the same creature, which is what I'm betting (though not certain) that this is. Your prognosis depends on the genes that drive the cells. Best wishes ...Read more

Multiple enlarged axilla lymph nodes (largest is 2cm) normal chest xray.High Wbc. High absolute neutropolis.High lymphocytes. Lymphoma Cancer?

Dont assume cancer: never make assumptions regarding cancer...you are right to be concerned and you should pursue further work-up...this will include a history and complete exam with possible further x-rays....the enlarged nodes could represent infection and not cancer...be prepared for biopsy to make final diagnosis ...Read more

Can a elevated WBC (14.1) high neutrophils (69%) low lymphocytes (23%) & large lymph nodes indicate cancer?

Can a elevated WBC (14.1) high neutrophils (69%) low lymphocytes (23%) & large lymph nodes indicate cancer?

Possible, but...: Without knowing more specifics of how the patient is doing clinically as well as the results of other blood tests (like the rest of the cbc), infection would be more likely with this picture (especially the elevated neutrophils). There are definitely other tests that could be performed if cancer was more of a concern, if this was warranted. ...Read more

What does a high neutrophil count & low lymphocytes & monocytes indicate? Neutrophil %(76(. Anc(3.42), absolute lymph(0.95), absolute mono(0.05)

What does a high neutrophil count & low lymphocytes & monocytes indicate?  Neutrophil %(76(. Anc(3.42), absolute lymph(0.95), absolute mono(0.05)

Probably nothing: Most adults have an absolute lymphocyte count of 1.6 x 10^3 or more, but it fluctuates chaotically. The stress of minor illness can drop it briefly in the absence of any other problem. Your physician can advise you depending on your health otherwise and may choose no follow-up. Everyone is wise to be checked occasionally for hiv. ...Read more

Could frequent infections with swollen lymph nodes be lymphoma? Wbc and lymphocytes are normal

Could frequent infections with swollen lymph nodes be lymphoma? Wbc and lymphocytes are normal

Possible: Even with normal blood work lymph nodes can be mildly enlarged from a nearby infection. If no infection is identified and nodes can get enlarged and sometimes very enlarged a lymphoma is in the possibility. When an infection is treated the lymph nodes will go back to normal but in lymphoma they are not necessarily going away and will increase in size. ...Read more

Lymph nodes in armpit very swollen- 2 months. chest hurts. sore throat. always sleeping. low WBC. high liver enzyme count. high iron count. help?

Continue workup: Your physician will continue the work up to figure out what is going. S/he has the advantage of knowing much more about onset and relationships between the various symptoms and findings, your age and risk factors, etc. I suspect some imaging (ct scan or PET scan) will be done soon and possibly even biopsy. Do not delay in getting any of the tests done. ...Read more

Is 48.8% neutrophils and absolute lymphocyte count 3.69 K?ul alarming

Not enough info: A blood count is only meaningful in the context of what is happening in the way of symptoms and signs of medical problems. It can be affected by medicines, infections (both vial and bacterial) and a host of other issues. The isolated information that you provided isn't alarmiing and really isn't meaningful all by itself. ...Read more

is it leukemia?

Likely not say more: Your weekly cbc tests seem unusual but along the way, ask the doc to make a blood smear and check your cells. That would be a good start to see if you need more specific tests, like a viral test since your lymphocytes count varIes and fatigue, may indicate infection, say mononucleosis,but if the peripheral bood smear shows really bad cells, more than those seen in infections,See blood docs.ingat. ...Read more

WBC is 4.4 K/uL, platelets 130K/uL, Monocyte 13.5%, & Basophil 2.3%. Lymph nodes in neck very swollen. Mono and Bartonella tests negative. Virus?

Lymphadenopathy: Although this is compatible with several viral infections, it may also be due a variety of other pathogens, some tick-borne, others not. This needs further investigation by your doctor and if it continues for an extended length of time perhaps bone marrow exams, lymph node biopsy and other means of diagnosis may be necessary. Go and be seen. Good luck ...Read more

Chances lymphoma with no noticeable enlarged lymph nodes? CBC, CMP normal. CT normal- mildly enlarged spleen 13cm

Very Low chance: It is reassuring that there aren't any enlarged lymph nodes, and you have a normalCBC. If there is a lymphoma, it is a very hard to detect one. And it is not causing any problems to the body. I would leave it alone. Get a check up maybe in 6 months- just labs, ldh and a physical exam or ultrasound for the spleen. Spleen sizes also vary quite a lot, but good to keep an eye on it. ...Read more
