Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das,
First of all the test results indicates that you have normal hemoglobin level, hematocrit value, polymorphs,lung fields.
Lymphocyte level is marginally raised. In many condition lymphocyte may get increased like chronic inflammation, viral infection etc. So, dont worry, it does mot mean you have any critical disease.
