Q. Please suggest further action after reviewing my wife’s blood report.



Hello doctor,

This is for my wife. She is 36 years old. Her height is 5’4″ and weight is 65 kg. Recently, we had a blood test and the attachments here are the results of the same. We are worried with the absolute lymphocytes count and percentage as well as the other highlighted numbers in the report. She keeps complaining of a slight pain in the stomach though not frequently. We are afraid of any cyst and we checked for it last year, but found nothing abnormal. I request you to review these numbers and suggest a further course of action.





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

I have gone through the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • She has vitamin D on the lower side. Apart from some ups and downs in the hemogram report, all the other reports are appearing to be within normal limits.
  • Rise in the lymphocyte count is known as lymphocytosis (4000 cells per microliter) and your wife’s count is 3460 cells per microliter. This is usually seen in temporary conditions like viral fevers, infectious diseases and may be an indication of the chronic hidden illness or autoimmune disorders.
  • It is only the chronic or persistent rise in the lymphocyte count that needs further evaluation.
  • One positive point I would like to share is the absence of atypical or abnormal cells in her hemogram. In that way, lymphoproliferative diseases can be kept aside.
  • Does she have any lymph nodes or increased fatigue or weight loss? Is there any abdominal lump?
  • Does she complain of photosensitivity or joint pains or recurrent fevers?
  • I would advise you to not panic and go for the repeat test after four weeks.
