My husband had a blood test done that found 1% immature granulocytes. His RBC and WBC were completely normal. He does have gout, but it kept under control for the most part. It generally only flares up when he walks a lot. A few days before the blood test we got back from a vacation to disneyland where we walked alot. Could this be the cause of the immature granulocytes? I am terrified that he has leukemia. He is 28 years old, and his family has no history of any type of cancer.
He is overweight, but his cholesterol is perfect. His BP is a little high but the family doctor just put him on lisinopril.
I am just so scared. He is suppose to go back to get another blood test to see if it changes, and then if not the doctor wants us to go to a hematologist.
I just want to know what other causes of immature granulocytes there can be, and how we can get rid of them. I just dont want to lose him to cancer.
