Hi
Welcome to Just Answer
Low white count means low white cell count.

There are many reasons for this including a viral infection, bone marrow disorders etc.

This requires further evaluation and repeat testing/bone marrow examination if deemed necessary by your doctor.

High PSA levels can be due to a prostate problem, and this should further be evaluated in terms of a prostate examination and ultrasound; to make sure that there is no prostate cancer.

You should see an Internist first, and discuss with him further work up and management plan.

If deemed necessary, he can involve a Hematologist and/or a Urologist in management.

I hope this clarifies and answers your question.

Kindest Regards XXXXX XXXXX luck.
