Are high lymphocytes (absolute and %) along with .2 abnormal protein band (m-protein) anything to worry about? Is further testing required?

There are many causes of "abnormal" urine protein and HIV isn't one of them as far as I know. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My CSF results show normal cell count but show inflammatory proteins-oligoclonal bands, what does this mean please?
Oligoclonal bands: These proteins are immunoglobulins usually detected by separating the proteins in an electric field-charged gel. Many CNS diseases are associated with their presence, but most commonly they are tested for when there is concern about multiple sclerosis.
