No, your white blood cell count would not be elevated if you had cancer in your bladder or in your body. The white blood cell count is a reflection of inflammation which is typically a sign of infection. The only type of cancer where the white blood cell count can be elevated is leukemia. With microscopic blood in your urine, the chances of cancer being present is less than 1%. It's even lower and someone your age. I've actually never seen bladder cancer and someone your age. Often times, we can't find the cause of the microscopic blood. I would not be concerned about cancer at your age. Hope this helps.
