Question from Debra:

My blood test showed my lymphs (absolute) was 3.7 high. Should I be worried?

Dr. Leclair: 

The WHO definition of CLL requires an absolute lymphocyte count of greater than 5.0 and the demonstration of a single clone of cells.

If your cells are not monoclonal, then you do not fit the definition of CLL.
