My wife just got some test results back and she has a calcified granuloma on her mid lung, her red blood cells are low, neutrophils are very high, lymphocytes are very low and her cholesterol is very low. I looked up a calcified granuloma and it said it can be caused by TB but she has never had TB. What are the chances that she has cancer?
As far as the calcified granuloma, that is like an old bit of scar tissue from a previous infection. It has nothing to do with cancer. As far as the high neutrophils and low lymphs, the % of each would be helpful. If one is high, the other will be low, as they are inversely related to add up to 100%. I assume you mean her total WBC was 8900, which is normal. I don't think anything you've mentioned sounds like cancer. Why did she have these tests? Does she have symptoms of illness? The anemia severity would be determined by her hemoglobin and hematocrit. MCV (size of red cells) can provide clue to cause of anemia. If you have other values and info to post, that would be helpful.
this is whats confusing me, you see in the uk my neutrophil count is 9.9 the range is 1.7-7.5, i dont understand the differences with your wife being 8,900, how is this converted? my doctor said 9.9 is high. is 8,900 the same as 8.9??
also if iv read correctly a calcified granuloma is an old area of inflammation which is no longer active. it sounds like her increased neutrophil could be related to something else, its normally a bacterial infection.
