Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern and worry.
There is an abnormality in bloods reports.
The neutrophil count is low,the LDH count is high.
If UWBC means abnomal or immature WBC then the report is pointing towards some abnomality.There is a possiblity of malignancy which needs to be confirmed by other investigations.
Your doctor is right in guiding you to a hematologist who will perform some other tests to rule out malignancy and other related hematological abnormalities.
The other biochemical parameters are not of major concern right now.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
