Re: High lymphocytes !What that is mean ?

When your doctor says you are fine, believe her! Why would you believe a perfect stranger on the internet instead?

You can have a lymphocyte count that is higher than the normal reference range but have absolutely no disease present. Your doctor made her judgment about whether the count is "too high" based on other factors, such as any symptoms you may be experiencing (or NOT experiencing!) and all the other results your blood work showed.

Leukocytes normal?...you're FINE.
Stop worrying

Thank you very much for your answer !
I was want to hear other opinions also because of this i ask !
Why i dont belive my doctor is a long story, i had bad experience with this office before, !I worried because i am scared my hpv infection comeback , i had a surgery to remove severe dysplasia 1 year before and also because i had a lymphoganglion remove 10 years before which the doctors they didnt know to tell me what kind of ganglion is it !

Leukocytes are normal !

Thank you again for your answer

Re: High lymphocytes !What that is mean ?

If you're worried about this, ask for another blood count in a few months. It may not indicate anything... some people just have a higher than average percentage of lymphocytes. But if it were me, even if the doctor said not to worry, I would have a repeat test done a few months later, to compare results.

I take a look to my blood work from 2008 and i notice also there lymphocytes was high , was 45(normal was 20-40) and now i have them 50, this means they increase in the last months !
