You blood count report seems normal but for elevated monocytes values. These could be because of some kind of infection and the symptoms you described fits in. A peripheral blood smear can rule out a leukemia if you are still concerned about it.
Are any lymph glands in neck enlarged ?
I would suggest you to go for a complete physical examination and do further tests based on your physician's opinion.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Patient replied :

Yes I have one of the lymph nodes enlarged ( neck) but I was thinking it is because of wisdom tooth infection. Is it possiblle taht such infection could cause increased monocytes count and enlarged lymph node ?
I have already arrange appointment with GP but I am littlle bit paranoid that it could be something serious like leukemia...

Thank you anyway

Isolated monocytes count elevation most commonly is because of infection probably viral. It is a self limiting one. In case of other normal parameters, I would not think of leukaemia. I would suggest you to take some antibiotics and meet your Physician ASAP for a complete physical examination.
Please Let me know if I can be of any more help.
