Question: High Lymphocytes


 hamilton1984 - Fri Feb 15, 2008 6:34 pm

I recently had blood work done and the results were
WBC 6.2 (4.2-10.2)
RBC 4.11 (4.00-5.20)
HGB 13.3 (11.9-15.5))
HCT 38.2 (36.1-44.6)
MCV 93.1 (81.0-97.0)
MCH 32.3 (27.4-34.2)
MCHC 34.7 (33.0-35.7)
PLATELET COUNT 293 (147-360)
RDW 12.9 (11.5-15.5)
MPV 7.5 (7.4-10.4)
NEUTROPHILS 43.9 (43.0-65.0)
LYMPHOCYTES 46.3 (20.5-45.0)
MONOCYTES 6.9 (5.5-11.7)
EOSINOPHILS 2.5 (0.9-2.9)
BASOPHILS 0.4 (0.2-1.0)
ANC-AUTOMATED 2.7 (2.2-4.8)
The doctor said everything is fine and he didn't say anything about my lymphocytes being high. I have not been sick in the last 2 months so could you tell me if everything is okay

User avatar Hello Hamilton1984,

Your lymphocyte count is actually just fine. It is so slightly above the upper limit of normal that it is not considered elevated. I would not be concerned if your lymphocyte count was 60% unless there was something else to make me concerned about it.

Generally, with rare exception, if your total WBC count is normal, the differential (percentage of lymphocytes, neutrophils, etc.) is really not significant.

Best wishes.

Doc,
Im a Pilot... when i went for the medical test they said my lymphocyte was high @ 46(Range was 20-40)... so they've asked me to come back again when the reports are normal...
i spoke to my family doc he said 46 is normal... but i want it to be reduced... how do i do that... some times i have a sore throat... but when i went for the tests i felt i was normal....
pls help

Hi, I have a question. My daughter, who turned 3 years old in December, has been getting petechiae for 5 months now, and was sent to a hematologist oncologist for further tests. At this point, we only have the results from the office visit today. On the results it says that the platelet count is high at 443, the MPV is low at 6.3. the SEGS are low at 29.0, and the lymphocytes are high at 61.0. She complains of stomach pain daily, and random foot pain as well. Do you have any idea what this could be? Also she finished a round of amoxicillin about a week ago due to an upper respiratory infection. Also, the doctor said she is having more tests done to rule out things, but that she wasn't overly concerned.
