Blood test done for testosterone, vitamin D, cholesterol,lymphocytes and monocytes. Could it be cancer?

Hi, I just got my blood panel results back the other day and it had the following results: Testosterone , Total: 410 mg/mL (low) Vitamin D: 23 mg/mL (low) Cholesterol: 113 mg/mL (low) WBC: 2.0 k/uL (low) Lymphocytes: 40.7 % (mid-high) Monocytes: 17.5 % (high) The doctor referred me to a hematologist , but the soonest appointment is next week. I ve had the same types of numbers on previous blood panels (over 10 years) and I m hardly ever sick. I m a 41 year old male, I don t smoke and I don t drink. Should I be worried? Could it be cancer? I m freaking out here.

from what you have written you dont have cancer and there is nothing to worry also. Cancer cells can be made out on peripheral smear itself. Since you said you have the same type of blood picture 10 years back, it all the more indicates that there is nothing to worry. Cancer usually progresses with time. There is one type of cancer of lymphocytes which progresses very slowly but your blood counts dont suggest that type of cancer also
