Hello,
The normal range for WBC count is 4,300 to 10,800 cells per cubic millimeter (cmm) or 4.3 to 10.8 x 109 cells per liter. Raised WBC count or Leukocytosis may be caused by several conditions including bacterial infection, inflammation, leukemia, trauma, or stress.

I suggest you to consult a hematologist and get a differential count done. Raised neutrophils are found in bacterial infection,Raised lymphocytes are found in viral infections such as glandular fever and  lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL),raised eosinophils are found in parasitic infections, asthma, or allergic reactions and raised monocyte and basophils are found in monocytic leukemia, chronic ulcerative colitis, regional enteritis and leukemia or lymphoma respectively.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

I never made an apt. with a hemotologist instead i went to my primary doctor because i needed pre-op for a procedure i am having done, she repeated the blood test and just got the results.
My white blood count is 9.6 from 12.4 a month ago.. I asked her what does it mean, her answer was that according the test done two years ago i have what it is called a reactive ..?...i did not write it down but it  sounded leukocytosis.  In your opinion should I still go to the hemotologist and if i have hashimoto thyroidtis and endometrial polyps would that cause my white blood count to go up and down..

Hello,
Your WBC count is within normal limits now. Reactive leukocytosis is a non neoplastic increase of peripheral WBC > 10,000/mm3, usually accompanied by fever, focal signs of infection, normal platelet count, normal Hb and paucity of immature WBCs.

I suggest you a hemotologist’s consultation for the same.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
