Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
13.5 WBC is slightly on the higher side (high but not abnormally so and usually due to infection). High white blood cell count is typically seen in inflammation and infection. It is also seen in cancers such as leukemias and lymphomas (BOTH UNLIKELY IN YOUR CASE). Depending on your symptoms further evaluation will be required.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
