Hi, there's nothing all that unusual there. Your neutrophils (and monocytes) are high, that's usually from fighting a bacteria infection. Or maybe it might be a fungus or even some parasite, seeing as how the eosinophils are also a little high.

I'd only start to get concerned if the counts don't go down after weeks. Nothing there says cancer - and that slight drop in platelets is likely just a normal fluctuation.

It seems you've also had a blood smear, where they look at the blood under a microscope. Everything comes out normal. The "reactive" lymphocytes is also a sign of infection.
