Hello~I would ask your doctor, when you got the labs back, did he say anything about those numbers? It might mean a minor infection, have you been ill in the last week or so?

The most common type of leukocytosis is neutrophilia (an increase in the absolute number of mature neutrophils to greater than 7,000 per mm3), which can arise from infections, stressful conditions, chronic inflammation, medication use, and other causes. Lymphocytosis (when lymphocytes make up more than 40% of the WBC count or the absolute count is greater than 4,500 per mm3) can occur in patients with pertussis, syphilis, viral infections, hypersensitivity reactions, and certain subtypes of leukemia or lymphoma. Lymphocytosis is more likely to be benign in children than in adults.
