Blood test result

Posted , 5 users are following.

hi just looking for some advice! I'am a 27yr old male. last week i had a routine checkup at the dentist were he found a lump under my jaw that he wanted my gp to look at! the gp said its a swollen lymph node and took some bloods! I got a text with the blood results saying bloods were fine apart form white blood cells looked reactive which normally indicates a viral infection! other the a chest infection i had a few weeks back i feel fine! can anyone shed any light on what it could mean?

    Hello Johnny, did you have your MMR vaccine as a child? There appears to be a lot of mumps around, that was my first thought when I read your post but presumably your GP would recognise it but possibly not if s/he is young.

    Perhaps someone else will have a better idea. Good luck

      Hi johnny11905,

      It is very sad that your doctor forgot to respect you, you have the full right to have your blood results and you should insist to have them. It is your property, and your health.

      Please be aware that most of the doctors do'nt have any idea how to interpreted the blood results and they are depended on the laboratory technician which generally follow the standard procedure that representing around 35% accuracy.
