elevated WBC and exposure to H1N1 flu

I am 35 years old and went to the doctor for a med check.  She wanted to recheck my WBC because in May it was 15.8 but  I had a horrible sinus infection and pharyngitis.  So she rechecked it and it came back at 12.57.  NOW she wants me to see a hematologist.  I am slightly freaking out.  My husband and son have both been sick for almost 2 weeks now with the H1N1 flu virus.  I have a minor cough and sore throat but other than that no symptoms. No fever.  Is it possible for my wbc to be elevated because of the cold symptoms?  Is my body just fighting off the virus ahead of time??  And if so, then why in the world is my doctor sending me to a hematologist??  Any insight from anyone will be GREATLY appreciated!!  OH!!  And less than a month ago, I was diagnosed with a 2 inch left ovarian cyst.  Can any of this not come into play with the elevated wbc???
