I don't think this is any concern at all.
Neither did your doctor.

Look on your lab and look for your reference range for the lymphocyte count and tell me what it is

He has ordered another full blood count which I did yesterday I'm still waiting for the results, everything in my blood was fine apart from this lymphocyte count which was 4.1, could my back pain have any affect on my lymphocyte count
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
No this has no bearing.
A slightly low count with no other abnormalities is within the realm of lab error, a recent viral infection, medication effect, etc....

I do not think it is a concern.
