Could this be leukemia?
Back in October 2012 my wbc count was 12.50, with high neutrophils
November 2012 wbc count 13.80 again because of high neutrophils
In December 2012 my wbc came back normal at 9.50 but borderline high lymphocytes
In January 2013 my wbc came back again abnormal at 11.80 with normal neutrophils but high lymphocytes (4.60)!
A month ago my wbc came back normal at 9.40 with normal neutrophils (4.70) but high lymphocytes (3.95)
A week ago my wbc came back abnormal again at 15.90 with high neutrophils (11.30) normal lymphocytes (3.20)
high monocytes (1.15) and normal Immature Granulocytes (0.02). Note that i had a toothache and that was followed by a root canal treatment 2 days before bloodwork.

What could cause a shift between neutrophilia and lymphocytosis?

Shift? Are you generally prone to infections throughout life or as a recent development? Or do you have an overactive immune system associated with autoimmunity or inflammatory conditions?

Normally, you'd expect neuts to go up from bacteria or fungus, lymphocyte to react to virus. But there can always be exceptions, just as most viruses don't cause fever but some do.

I would disregard any test after surgical-like procedures - even a lipid panel,

Myelogenous leukemia wouldn't shift like that, no.

Hi again. So, having an inflammatory condition is no joy, but it's certainly far better than a blood cancer. You might now, looking back over the years, remember other inflammatory symptoms that were less severe.

Thanks for posting that update, that was considerate of you.
