I have high lymphocyte % (the # of lymphocytes is normal) and I also have low neutrophil % (with # in range). All other CBC blood work normal. Cancer?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Wouldn't think so

A CBC is not a valid screening test for cancer.
Of all the human cancers, most would have a normal CBC early in the course & many remain so well after discovery. A CBC gives a non-specific snapshot of the existing state of the cells in circulation. It gives more suggestions on acute or chronic infections or blood production.
