Re: Low White Cell and High Monocytes??? my 15 yr old daughter....HELP
The same thing happened to me many years ago. My white cell count went to 0. They thought I had cancer. It turned out to be that my system was just very beat up by mono, which didn't show up for 2 more weeks. I was exhausted. They fixed the situation with a round of Prednisone (raises you white count) and IV gama globulin. (IVIG).
A low white count doesn't always mean cancer. It could be nothing - it could fix itself. Viruses can really hurt our systems, and there's so many that aren't identified.
If it continues, you'll probably have to see a hematologist.
