Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
How long have you had these symptoms?
So the fact that your symptoms have only been going on for a week is a good sign. Typically this means it is some sort of infection whether viral or or bacterial. If bacterial, a doctor would need to prescribe you antibiotics to clear the infection.
Let me know if you have other questions.

Yes, I saw the blood work. It indicates that you do have an infection and I would recommend repeating the same tests in a few weeks after you feel better.
Was there a component of your blood work known as white blood cells?
Cancer does not manifest itself over the course of 1 week with the specific symptoms you are experiencing. Please have a doctor examine your throat and possibly send a swab to the lab for culture if you have not already to see if you are having strep throat
What you showed me is called a cbc with differential but it is unfortunately nonspecific. Have you been seen by a doctor?
Sounds good. Please leave me a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit. Thank you!
Please don't forget to leave me a positive rating, thanks!
Hello, I wanted to see how you were doing and to check if you had a chance to get a throat culture.
Can I help you with anything else?
