Lymphocyte Subset Panel
I have hives for over two weeks. Gp ran full blood panel everything was okay except for slightly elevated lymphocytes. Still itchy with welts.
Possibly no problem: If you have no symptoms that led to a blood count that revealed the low count, you are probably fine. Also, if your total white cell count is low, so will be the number of lymphocytes.The fact that the count has not changed in 12 years further suggests that this is the case. You probably should not have any new blood counts unless there is a specific reason. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Few years ago I had brucellosis. Since then my lymphocytes are slightly above the normal. Is it safe or should I go to a doctor?
Not necessarily: Is 3.4 your lymphocyte or your total white blood cell count? If its total white blood cell, 3.4 is a bit low but if you feel fine and everything else on your blood tests is normal I wouldn't worry about it. Take another blood test in a few months to see if it is stable, improving, or getting worse. If that's only lymphocyte the same thing applies, you may have had a virus, recheck in a few months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lots of B cells: A lymphocyte enumeration is a count of the lymphocytes in your blood. Lymphocytes primarily include t-cells, b-cells, and nk-cells. B-cells are identified by cd19, a marker on their surface. Have the doctor who ordered the test help you interpret the result. The number of b-cells (how how the cd19 count is), your age, blood vs bone marrow, and your symptoms help him/her interpret the results. ...Read more
