That number is XXXXX mild, often seen in a patient that has mild, non specific inflammation.

It is not something I would investigate further at this time with more invasive testing such as a bone marrow evaluation/aspiration.

If concerned, in 1 week repeat the bloodwork to confirm the value is back to normal.

More serious signs such as leukemia are often not considered until the value is greater than 50-60,000.
