Question: My son is 3 yrs old he has been having night sweats for sometime now. He also bruises very easy and has had 4 blood test done through out his life. His blood work has always been a little off by his doctors standards. His Dr continues to tell me its just a virus but on March 8th we had labs done again and the labs came back a little off again. He hasnt been sick finally in a few weeks. He hasnt had any runny noses or coughing so when i took him in on the 8th to do labs i wanted to make sure he hadnt been sick. His doctor still thinks its a virus. I have posted all his blood work below the first one is from March 8th the others are spread out from 2016 till now. I just cant shake the feeling something more is going on.

Brief Answer:
Blood counts

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

There are absolute and relative lymphocytosis. The first is characterized by the increase in the total number of lymphocytes in the blood, the second the percentage of these cells. The reasons for the excess of lymphocytes include:
1-Viral infections
2-Bacterial infection
3-The presence of parasites.
4-Diseases of the endocrine system
5-Anemia etc

If your doctor had included those causes then you have nothing to worry.

Hope I have answered your query.
