is it leukemia please help to understand bloodwork high wbc high neu high lym
About four months ago I began feeling extremely fatigued. Then the dull lower flank pain started on both sides. I have constant naseau and always feel really weak.I went to ER. Cat scan only showed tiny cyst on right ovary. Blood and urine tests were done. Blood showed 13.5 white blood cell count. Went to Regular doctor. He checked me for diabetes, thyroid, and it came back negative. At that time my white blood cell count was 15. He gave me antibiotics nothing worked. We just ran the test again my white blood cell count is at 15.7 and now my NEU# is 10.9 and my LYM# is 3.8 He has referred to a hematologist. Im a 26 year old female generally healthy until now I do smoke and am overweight (not obese) I always was on the go, and now just walking through a store is a long slow process
Im terrified. Is it most likely leukemia or cancer What elses could it be Please feel to give any suggestions
From the blood picture alone, I believe that there is insufficient evidence to say that this is lymphoma. Even the level of WBC elevation is not that high compared to the usual leukemia cases that we see in the clinics. Also, in leukemia, there is the presence of abnormal white blood cells called 'blasts' and other immature forms.
I won't be surprised if your hematologist will dismiss the consideration of leukemia or other primary hematologic disorder. Your symptoms of fatigue and pain may be related to your cardiovascular status and I suggest you get your heart and lungs checked.
