Hello There..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Increase in total leucocytes in patient who have cancers usually indicates some kind of cancer due to low immunity..It needs immediate management and treatment with appropriate antibiotics to prevent further health damage.
The patient wbc is slightly above normal..So patient needs further investigation and determine the exact cause and treatment.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
