My WBC is elevated so they tested for leukemia. I am scared out of my mind and I have to wait a couple of days to get the results back which is not helping the stress. Does anyone know the % of it being leukemia and not something else. I read up on leukemia and I really don't have any of the symptoms besides the elevated WBC and fatigue. I am only 23, should I be scared.
Elevated white blood cell count please help!?

Hi there. I am not an expert but I do know there are many other reasons your white blood cell count could be up. My last blood test showed mine were up. My doctor said it is usually because you have been fighting off an infection. Mine was probably a bad cold. Just saying I would not worry so much. It could be something small.
