Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.
You want to know which medical conditions may be indicated by increased lymphocytes.
Lymphocytes are increased in cases of viral infection which can be located anywhere in the body. The most frequent clinical appearance of viral infections are pharyngitis, enterocolitis, common cold, flu, lymphadenitis, etc. In rare conditions, increased lymphocytes may suggest leukemia.
According to the data that you described, you experience increased lymphocytes. It may be caused by a previous viral infection such as a common cold or enterocolitis. You may consider having another blood count after all the symptoms and inflammations that you experience. If you still experience increased lymphocytes with increased white blood cells count, you may want to see a hematologist to exclude any hematological medical conditions.
Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor for further advice and information about diagnosis and treatment options.
