need evaluation for my blood test

I has CBC (complete blood check) test in which it showed CD4 count is 980 and  lymphocytes is 19.1% for range 20-40%. What does these values mean. Does this indicate weaker immune system in the body. I am little nervous please help me. Thanks.

I was told from doctor that every thing is normal after looking at CBC report. I asked specifically what is the cd4 count he said it is 9800 or 9.8 something  so I posted a guessed value can you please elaborate on this. Thanks.

Sorry teak I was mistaken. Yes he talked about WBC. I have lymphocytes  greater than 19.x%. Is this a weak immune system. Please let me I am little nervous. Thanks.

Yes, it won't report CD4. But I am little curious about my lymphocytes %. It was reported that I had greater than 19.x% of lymphocytes given 20-40% is normal range. Doctor has said if it is 20% it would have been nice, but said ok, it seems fine. But still I am really nervous can you please tell me is that normal. Thanks.
