Question: My white cell count came back high. The Dr tested me last year and it was 10,600 and this year it was 11,700. Should I have any reason for concern?

Brief Answer:
may not be of concern

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

I would not worry too much with this much white cells unless there is any infection or other symptoms or the differential count is abnormal.

If possible please send the differential count of white cells.

Hope this helps.
