Question: elevated CBC lymph
|r8rmojoe - Mon May 02, 2005 12:34 pm||
My job offered a blood screening that I accepted and just got the results back on. Everything is within the normal range except for my lymph reading was elevated(44.2%).
What does this mean? I am worried please respond.

I wouldn't worry about it. Lymphocytes fluctuate out of range to combat foreign organisms in the blood such as a viral infection. In the absence of lymph node enlargement or an increase in total leucocyte counts there is probably not much happening. A follow up blood count after a month will help lesson your worries. Please refer to your physician with your results.
