WBC Count is 12.5 and Absolute Lymphocytes 4250. This is not the first test to have high results. Should I be worried?

WBC Count is 12.5 and Absolute Lymphocytes 4250.  This is not the first test to have high results. Should I be worried?

Lab data: It is difficult to know whether or not you should worry. This a lab result, divorced from clinical relevance. It you develop symptoms then you might want to follow this up. In addition, you do not mention any of the other values on a CBC, which might have been helpful, but even then, without history and exam, difficult to know. ...Read more

11.6 wbc, 6.45 absolute neutrophils, 3.78 absolute lymphocytes,  0.95 absolute monocyte, 0.02 immature neutrophils. Lab mark them high. Causes?

May be none.: 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. Having said that, this count may be your normal. The count is only mildly increased and if you have no symptoms, do not be concerned.

Not concerned: Absolute lymphocyte count fluctuates wildly for reasons that are usually totally mysterious -- the immune system is itself chaotic. If your physician is not concerned, i would not be either. ...Read more
