In brief: Elev WBC

The answer depends on the etiology of the prolonged elevation in white blood cells (WBC) = leukocytosis.
Elevated lymphocytes may be cll. Rai stage 0 cll is observed, but may need treatment. Elevated eosinophils may be from allergies. Elevated neutrophils or monocytes may be from many causes including inflammation (chronic infection, rheumatoid arthritis, ibd, etc).
