Hello and welcome to e health forum.

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.
