I am a 34-year-old female that just got back my blood test results and I am worried because I may have to go see a hematologist if the results haven't changed in 3 weeks. Below are my results..please tell me if you think I have leukemia or if it's just an infection. I have been tired lately and low-grade fever with sinus drainage. Any help would be appreciated.


PLATELET COUNT----------------414,000



ABSOLUTE MONOCYTES-------------1,010

User avatar Hi WorriedinFlorida,

Based on these results it is likely that you are reacting to a virus since your lymphocyte percentage of your WBC's is elevated. Simply based on these results I see no evidence of cancer.

If your WBC count goes down in a few weeks it is almost certainly an infection.

Best wishes.

Thank you for your response...I just got my new results in and wanted to ask you another question. My doc still thinks I need to see a hematologist but my results were much better this time around..I will post them below...let me know what you you really think it's necessary for me to see one also even if my numbers are lower now?


Platelet Count------408,000
