I have high absolute neutrophils. Whats this mean?

I have high absolute neutrophils.  Whats this mean?

Hard to say: Any lab result gives a number that is compared to a range of normal. But even the extremes of "too high" can still be normal for an individual. If the result is a change, then a high neutrophil count makes me think of infection(since that is one of the bodies responses), inflammation, stress, reaction to medication or even cancer like leukemia. Talk with provider who ordered test to put in context. ...Read more

What is absolute neutrophils and what does it mean when mine is high my absolute neutrophils level is high

Neutrophils : Neutrophils are white blood cells that help to fight bacterial infections. The absolute neutrophil count (anc) is used to assess how many neutrophils a person has. A count that is too low can put you at risk for bacterial infections. A high count can indicate that your body is fighting an infection, or can be from an inflammatory injury such as a burn, heart attack or appendicitis. People who do not have a spleen also can have a higher than normal anc. It can even be caused by medications (such as steroids) or stress. Very rarely a high anc can indicate malignancy such as chronic myelogenous leukemia, but people usually have other signs and symptoms, also. Because of this very wide range of high anc causes, the context in which the test was ordered and how high it actually is is very important. If you are worried about your test result, call the doctor that ordered the test and ask what they were looking for and if your high anc is a concern. ...Read more

Possibilities...: The most common cause is something called viral suppression, where certain viral infections can transiently impair the bone marrow's ability to produce platelets, white blood cells and red blood cells. This will improve on its own as your body clears the infection. Less common, but serious causes include aplastic anemia or leukemia. Watchful waiting is ok if the person does not appear sick. ...Read more

What does it mean to have a high monocytes and low neutrophils absolute count while I am taking Nexavar, a chemotherapy for advanced thyroid cancer?

Effect of chemo: Low neutrophils are expected with chemotherapy agents, as the drugs destroy them (in the process of destroying the cancerous cells.) High monocyte count can be due to an infection or inflammation. Also, as the blood counts recover after a dose of chemo, the monocyte count can also be temporarily improved. Good luck with your cancer treatment. ...Read more
