What are some of the causes of a high White Count? Mine has been high for over a year. I am scheduled to see a hematologist/oncologist on Monday and am very worried. I have constant cysts under my arms, breasts, and neck, as well as a 7cm cyst on my ovary that my obgyn is currently watching. Could that account for my high white count?
I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes repeated cysts in armpits could cause this raised leukocytes. Complete blood work up is advised to sort it out.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
