Hi, I had a blood test and my eosinophils were 13% and my Eos Abs was 1.0. My question is about lymphoma, would the lymph abs be abnormal in a lymphoma diagnosis? Also, what specific cancers are indicated in an elevated wbc count? Thank you so much for your time and expertise!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

An elevated eosinophil count can be seen in certain types of infections, allergic reactions and cancers. It is not specific to any one disease.

Which is more important?
