probably you are on routine screening for cervical cancer. let me inform you cervical cancer can not be reflected on complete blood count. you have to visit your gynaecologist for cervical pap smear. CBC can only detect any infection or any abnormality in hematopoetic system or any immunological disorder. so do not miss your gynae follow ups. take care.
