The Relationship Of Leukocytosis With The Incidence Of Colli Tumors?
I want to ask again. r nMy mother did a blood test and the result was that leukocytosis reached 11590 and it was stated that she had colli tumor.
Hello, Hendra Saputra, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Leukocytosis is a condition where the number of white blood cells in the blood has a higher value than normal. In adults, normal white blood cells range from 3500 to 10,500. High white blood cells can be a sign of inflammation and can be caused by several conditions such as an infection, certain drug effects, allergies, stress, autoimmune disease, spinal cord disorders, or blood disorders.
Meanwhile, colli tumors have a general meaning that is a lump that occurs in the neck. The neck is composed of various structures, from the skin, muscles, fat, bones, lymph nodes, to the thyroid gland. The lump can come from these structures. Lumps can be benign or malignant, and can be caused by several possible causes, for example inflammation or infection in the body that causes swelling of lymph nodes in the neck, tumors in lymph nodes, lumps in the skin (for example: skin abscesses), lipomas, to disorders of the thyroid gland.
Leukocytosis and colli tumors that occur in your mother can be interconnected or stand alone. To determine the cause of colli tumors and leucocytosis, there must be more complete data regarding complaints felt by the patient, symptoms that occur, previous medical history, data on physical examination, to other supporting examination data such as complete blood test results, ultrasound, and biopsy (check tissue samples under a microscope). With biopsy, it will be seen whether the cells are benign / malignant, originating from where the cells are, so that appropriate therapy can be determined. So, you should follow the advice of the doctor who treats him about the steps that should be done next, whether further examination or certain actions / therapies.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
