For answers: Your child has some abnormalities in his blood work that your child's doctor can't explain. A hematologist/oncologist is a specialist in blood diseases and is better suited to identify why these abnormalities exist. I would not let it worry you; just go and see what the specialist has to say. ...Read more

History of hnscc, rec'd radiation. Abs lymph is low 700 (850-3900 cells/ul), but abs neut is normal 3891 (1500-7800 cells/ul). Should I be concerned?
No, not really: If you feel well and are otherwise healthy, then this lymphocyte count is probably ok. It will fluctuate with time. So you need to be patient and keep an eye on it over the next 1-2 years. As long as it doe snot drop to less than 600, I would not be too concerned about it. ...Read more

WBC pattern very c/w: Bacterial infection & systemic response. Segs are immature polymorphonuclear cells, the dominant of the 5 WBC types circulating in blood. Usual % ~60 with few/no segs. The very high seg % is c/w intense signaling to the bone marrow to aggressively respond-to/fight an infection which you have been loosing. IV antibiotics likely best.

Could lymphoma cause constipation, one swollen lymph node, low grade fever, severe fatigue and excessive sweating?
Diagnosis, symptoms: Symptoms alone can not be helpful to make a diagnosis of lymphoma, Physical examination to assess the size of the lymph node, tests to check the rest of the body and a biopsy of an enlarged lymph node, all put together, help us to make a diagnosis. You need to go to a doctor for examination if you are concerned about your symptoms (if these are progressively getting worse) ...Read more
Could I have cat scratch fever, I have enlarged swollen lymph nodes, low grade fever abdominal soreness, CBC is normal cat licks me all the time?
Cat scratch: I have never heard or read about cases of cat scratch fever from just cat licking - it's called "scratch fever" for a reason. However, you are obviously around cats a lot, and the scratch does not have to be very significant to contract the disease. So it's a simple blood test and you would know the answer one way or the other - talk to your doc about getting the test done. ...Read more
