    40 is still within the normal range, and doctors usually do not worry even about more than 40 as long as it's not high above!

    It could also be that you have had some viral infection some time ago and the lymphocytes were high, and now they are going down.

    Cancer would definitely show a more extreme result!

    But you are still within the normal range, don't forget that!
    Each person can have individual variations without having a disease.

    My son has very low neutrophiles, for example. The normal range is 2-8 and he is always between 0,8-1,8. The doctors have explained to me that the "normal range values" are pure statistics, a variation does not necessarily mean that something is wrong, if it is not a big alteration of course.
