I have a abnormal high white blood count my dr says inflamation somewhere in my body or lukemia help?
i wantto know what causes abnormaly high white blood cells my dr says inflamation in the body or lukemia but does not seem to be going any furter with testing
Your white blood cells are the first line of defense against foreign bodies or infection, so if there is a high number of WBC's it most likely just means your body is actively fighting it off. Change doctors, and get a blood screening.
It might be time to get a new doctor then....although I think that a high white blood cell count is usually caused by infection or something along those lines. Some info from the Mayo Clinic:
I had the same thing, my Dr told me it was an infection somewhere in my body, I had X-Rays, took antibiotics, even went to a Hematologist!! They found nothing, no cancer, no infection, I went to a follow appointment I had and my white blood cell count was back to normal, and it has been since April '07
If you have no symptoms, it is difficult to test you for the correct problem. If your Dr. isn't testing your for anything else, he/she must no think that your WBC is abnormal enough to warrant any more testing at this point. If leukemia was suspected, I guarentee that you would getting a battery of tests right now.
There is a blood disease that is abbreivated ITP. I don't know much about this, or if this is something you could have at all . . .BUT I had a friend who had a blood test, and the doc initally said it looked like Lukemia, very high white blood cells. After a lot more testing, they found out it was ITP.
An elevated number of white blood cells is called leukocytosis. This can result from bacterial infections, inflammation, leukemia, trauma, or stress.
Yes, you might have infection somewhere. What about your rbc count? The best thing is see a hematologist.
That's a strange doctor who'd say "Well it's either an infection somewhere in your body (likely) or Lukemia (less probable), but I don't care to find out what's exactly going on."
