5 doctors weighed in:

X ray of broken bone showed hole in bone biopsy done and was neg for bone cancer. Recent blood test showed low white blood count. Reason for concern?

In brief: Evaluation warranted

Depending on how low the white count, it would be wise to continue to be followed by a primary health care provider and/or hematologist.
It will likely return to normal, but it should be followed.

In brief: Need more info

"hole in bone" could be many things.
Because of low white blood cells, I am worried about the bone marrow and , if not done, should be biopsied. (not sure if that's what was biopsied from your note) other blood tests should also be done.
