Hi everyone, my WBC rose from 39 to 51 in three months. My lymphocytes went from 85.0 to 88.7. My lymphocyte percentage is 45.2. Any ideas what can cause the wbc to jump like that? I have been on watch and wait since 2016. I have minor lymph node growth. I am not on treatment. My MD said instead of coming in every three months, to come back in two months to check the wbc count again. Accordjng to her I have the indolent variety of CLL, but am concerned. Would an increase in wbc be a cause to start treatment?
Any thoughts re possible causes?
