Hi everyone,

I'm sure I am jumping the gun a bit here, but I can't find much information to help me out.
For the last 9 or so months I have had constantly high lymphocytes. My WBC has been within normal every time, but my lymphocyte count is always high (this isn's an absolute lymphocyte, just the normal Differencial).
I had my blood retested on the 7th, and got the results on the 12th. Everything is normal except:

RBC 5.06 million, (norm 3.50-5.00 mill)
PLT 488,000 (norm 150,000-400,000)
Lymphocytes 6000/L (norm 1000-4000/L)
Platelet Est Increased

[I]"Persistant low level lymphocytosis unchanged. ? Proliferative disease such as monoclonal lymphocytosis or undertermined signifigance, CLL, other. In view of age suggest hemotologist consult.[/I]
Was written on the lab results by the doctor at the lab who reviewed the results.

This blood test was taken because of persistant skin infections (boils and abcesses) and fairly severe fatigue (he was actually testing for Diabetes and thyroid dysfunction which were negative).
I'm just waiting to for the appointment date and time with the hemotologist. My doctor tells me he's concerned, but I really have no clue what these results mean. He's also told me that he suspects I will have to have a bone marrow biopsy.
Does anyone here have any clue what's up with these blood tests? I can't find much information online that links any of the raised things together.

Anyone with any experience here? I'm a bit worried, I'm 32 and I have 2 small children.

Christine
He didn't. But the boils are not causing the high lymphocytes, as the lymphocytes were high months before I got the boils, and I am talking on EVERY blood test (at least 6 blood tests sine June).
My total WBC is normal at 107,000 (norm range 40,000-110,000)
Hemoglobin was also normal at 140 g/L (norm range 115-160)

The boils were not diagnosed because this all came up. His initial thought was Diabetes, but BGT ruled that out. The results of that test were what prompted the referal to the hemotologist.

I have had high lymphocytes for about 9-10 months now, and had boils since September.
