Hello
Welcome to the just answer website.


WBC count is 4,500-11,000 white blood cells/mcL (cells per microliter).Your count of 10.5 is normal.Hematocrit value is also normal as range is from 36.1 - 44.3%.
The normal values of blood differential count are as follows:

Neutrophils: 40% to 60%
Lymphocytes: 20% to 40%
Monocytes: 2% to 8%
Eosinophils: 1% to 4%
Basophils: 0.5% to 1%

Your neutrophil(31%) is below normal where as lymphocytes(57%),Eosinophill(9%)are higher then normal. Monocytes(3%) are within normal range.


In conclusion of all these tests, I say that this can be due to following conditions:Chronic bacterial infection,infectious hepatitis, infectious mononucleosis, viral infection or acute allergic reaction from an allergen. These are very general & basic tests.
So you need some more special test to diagnose the condition.This is of concern.So I advice you to consult your doctor for more specialized tests to know the exact cause.

Please feel free to ask if you have any other question.

Does this in anyway indicate any kind of cancer? Why couldn't my doctor doe more tests instead of sending me to an oncologist? Could this condition be cause by high thyroid? What about medications being taken? Dr recently prescribed Simvastatin for & a new antidepressant that is something like citalapram(?)

The test report you have given, doesnot seem to be due to cancer. Infection is the most probable cause of this.

Chronic bacterial infection,infectious hepatitis, infectious mononucleosis, viral infection or acute allergic reaction from an allergen are the most common causes. These are very general tests & hence does not indicate any particular condition like cancer.

Tests are required to know the exact cause & treatment will be done accordingly.


So I advice you to consult your doctor for more specialized tests to know the exact cause.

Please feel free to ask if you have any other question.
