Several tests: There is no specific blood test that means cancer unless the diagnosis is leukemia in which case the blood tests are most helpful. Anc is not a test to diagnose cancer, but is a test to see how many functioning white blood cells you have. Patients receiving chemo can see a drop in their anc and sometimes need a shot to raise it back up. Several blood tests can be used to follow cancer patients. ...Read more

Low WBC, low abs neurophils, and low anion gap w/o K. All other results of CMP and CBC w/diff. normal. Cause for concern?
Why tested?: 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.

Infectious mononucleosis does occur in a muted ( less intense) form in toddlers & the usual mono blood test can be negative until months after the illness has passed. If the kid is cruising around enjoying life i would ignore the test & get back to living. ...Read more
