I am worried about my...
I am worried about my recent blood test. My RBC came back normal for everything, but my WBC was 3.7, lymphocytes 1.4 37%, Granulocytes 1.7, 43%, Baso 1%, Eoso2%, segmental 46% and my monocytes were 0.7 (but 19%!) I am concerned by the high percentage of my monocytes, I did come down with a throat infection and cough after this test, but everything I read says if you have high monocytes it can mean cancer. This doesn’t help me as I have an anxious personality. Please can you advise me.

Thank you

Thank you for the input.
I understand your concern.
As you had a viral infection, it is the reason for rise in monocyte level.
Total WBC count is low.
It will be normalize slowly.
Doctor can take a repeat test after a few weeks.

You should not worry.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Should I be concerned that my WBC is low too? I generally feel healthy and don’t often get infections. Also if my absolute is 0.7 which is within the normal range why is the percentage high?

In viral infection total WBC count can be low.

As the total count did not increase, so percentage became high in spite of normal total monocyte count.
