I am scared to death and need some advise.
I had blood work done from my cardiologist to check my cholesterol which came back high. that is not my concern right now. what scares me is that there were some adnormal readings concerning my [B]cbc with differential/platelet. This is what the test results says:

WBC 4.1 range 4.0-10.5
(wbc deterioration noted on the blood smear.) Fibron strands present. Results may be questionable.

RBC 4.68 range 3.80-5.10

What also scares me is the following:

Immature Granulocytes 3 range 0-1 (high)
Please note:
(immature granulocytes include metamyelocytes, myelocytes, and promyelocytges. Does NOT include bands or blast cells.)

Immature Grans (abs) 0.1 range 0.0-0.1


I took my blood test results to my primary dr and he told me not to worry that i do NOT have leukemia since there where no cell blasts???? also he said the blood was tainted??
Shouldnt he have me take another test? I have been a nervous wreck over this as i have other symptoms.. joint pain, night sweats, low bp at night which goes high in the morning..shakes upon waking..

Should i be concerned with this or do i take the drs word and not worry?
