What is a complete blood count (CBC)?
A complete blood count (CBC) is a blood test. It helps healthcare providers detect a range of disorders and conditions. It also checks your blood for signs of medication side effects. Providers use this test to screen for diseases and adjust treatments.

A CBC measures and counts your blood cells. Your provider takes a sample of your blood and sends it to a lab. The lab does a series of tests to evaluate your blood cells. These tests help your provider monitor your health.

When is a CBC performed?

You may need a CBC if you have symptoms such as:
Bruising or bleeding.
Fatigue, dizziness or weakness.
Fever, nausea and vomiting.
Inflammation (swelling and irritation) anywhere in the body.
Joint pain.
Problems with heart rate or blood pressure.

The CBC is a very common test. You may have a CBC performed when you have a routine health examination, when you are being diagnosed or assessed for a disease or condition, or when your provider is monitoring the effectiveness of a treatment.

Your health care provider is in the best position to address whether a CBC is appropriate in your specific situation.
