I have 'raised lymphocytes' written on my blood test results and I have to have another fbc in 3 weeks. Should I be worried about leukemia?

I would not worry: It is unlikely that simply having high lymphocytes would be leukemia. The most common cause for this finding is a viral infection. Symptoms of leukemia would include bruising, fatigue, fever and bone pain. Certainly, have your fbc rechecked if any of these symptoms occur. ...Read more
