In romania, the WBC levels are 4, 0-10, 0 mm/m3 . Mine were 9, 57. Are they too high? Could it be leukemia? Thank you

In brief: Stop worrying

The reference range is determined by looking at where most, but not all, healthy folks fall.
I can raise my WBC to 20, 0 romanian style by swimming for a short time cold water. If the white cells were not flagged as abnormal-looking, then at your age you have no evidence of leukemia, period. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

In brief: No

You would see ordinarily leukemics to have counts greater than 20, 000.
