Early study found it had high accuracy, but experts say it won't replace colonoscopy anytime soon

9 month old with the following blood results:
WBC 11.2 (4.4-10.4)
Hematocrit 32.9 (33-39)
Platelets 504 (130-400)
Granulocytes 16 (42.2-75.2)
Lymphocytes 78 (20.5-51.1)
Absolute Lymphocytes 8.7 (1.2-3.4)
Aspartate Amino Transferease 47 (10-39)
No other symptoms present at this time. Had blood workup for something else.
Some of these seem quite abnormal?
Any opinions would be appreciated.

you cant diagnose leukemia from a CBC. The WBC is a little high, but not that much. Some other signs of leukemia include: Fever; Fatigue;Frequent infections; Swollen or tender lymph nodes, liver, or spleen; Paleness or pallor; Easy bleeding or bruising; Tiny red spots (called petechiae) under the skin; and/or Bone or joint pain. What does your doc say from the physical exam? The only actual way to diagnose is a bone marrow biopsy.

My initial CBC showed absolutely the presence of numerous blasts. In combination with my blood panel, symptoms and exam, the marrow aspiration was just a formality.
I waited way too long. 70% blasts in blood and bone. My marrow draw was "DRY"... if you suspect, get it checked.
