i had CBC test 2 days ago and my wbc was 11.5 .lymphocyte and monocyte also are below normal range; monocyte 1% and lymphocte 13% and n.segment is 85%. Should I be concerned about these numbers, and could this be an indicator of leukemia?
The cause of your low lymphocyte counts, could be due to differential elevation of the neutrophil segment and this could be due to a recent or current underlying infection ( Possibly due to the the persistent sorethroat).
The blood counts mentioned do not indicate any leukaemia or lymphoma.
