Customer Question

My doctor just called and said that my white blood cell count is slightly low at 3.7 and I had a little bit of blood in my urine. She said that I can return in a month to have a recheck if I was concerned. Should I be concerned?

This is Dr. David

you don't have to be concerned.

a WBC count of 3.7 can be normal

the blood in the urine can be a sign of a bacterial bladder infection

the urine needs to be checked and cultured to check for infection.

that urine check should not wait a month.

your symptoms don't point to cancer at this point.

I bet a repeat WBC blood test in 1 month will be normal.

let me know if you have questions.
