Age: 35; Female, Illinois
i was recently on a z-pak for upper resp. inf, and i am repeating cbc in 2 days. i am worried i have cancer.
It can be normal in pregnancy to have a slightly elevated white count. I would definitely agree that if you are having symptoms of infection or other concerning symptoms to have them evaluated.I think the repeat CBC in a few days is also a very good idea and will hopefully be reassuring.
I am not really having any other symptoms. I guess I want to know if 14000 is anything to really worry about. thanks
An isolated white blood cell count of 14000 is not worrisome. I would definitely look at the comparison CBC and to be sure you could follow it up postpartum.I wish you the best with your pregnancy.
