High Monocytes in CBC

Incorrect data in my last query. I did my CBC and got monocytes as 13%. My WBCs are in normal count range, 7000. Should I be worried of cancer? searched internet and found people saying high monocytes = cancer. Please suggest. In my old query i mentioned WBC as 4200, didn't know how to delete it.
