High Lympocytes
I have had two blood tests recently, both show High Lymphocytes and Low Neutrophils. My father and sister both had and have Lymphoma.  So I am concerned.  My docotor said since my WBC is ok 6 and 6 they are not concerned.  HCT was low on both tests also at 36.1 and 36.9 RBC low at 4.1 and 3.99

I dont' want to wait until I get a lump to find out I have lymphoma but my GP doens't know what to recommend next and doesn't seem as concerned as I am.  Is there another test I can have done to put me at ease or find out what is going on.  Everything I google on the internet says could be linked to Lymphoma.

Hi!
Low hematocrit is due to anemia, malnutrition, destruction of red cells by spleen, bone marrow failure, and blood loss as in stomach ulcers and irritable bowel disease or in kidney stones. Leukemia, multiple myeloma and rheumatoid arthritis are the other problems with low hematocrit.
Persistent neutropenia can be due to Vit B12 or folate deficiency or due to viral infection. Blood cancers including lymphomas either result in very low or very high counts. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy and certain autoimmune disorders also result in neutropenia. Since lymphocytes are high, hematocrit, neutrophils and RBC are low, you do need to take the test again. However, the pictures as of now are not too abnormal as seen in Lymphoma. However, if you have sweating, weakness, loss of appetite, swollen lymph nodes then yes, this blood picture should raise serious questions. Otherwise, though the findings are abnormal, they are marginally so ad need regular follow up. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
