The absolute counts you mentioned do not matter if the total count is not low, and not falling. Please state your symptoms for which blood test is being ordered.
Flow cytometry is automated count and may mislabel large platelet as lymphocyte. Better is manual test and slide differential count.
Total lymphocyte count is immaterial if there are abnormal and nucleated blast cells seen in peripheral smear, a hallmark for leukemias.
