Blood work queries

I am 26 and recently have got done a complete blood work and there are some points that are really worrying me I have been to a doctor but he says the report is fine, my lymphocyte percentage is 47.4 and I read 40 percent is a normal range, and a high %age can mean cancer and other serious diseases, my eosinophils came out to be 7.7 and that also is above a normal range, the same goes with the total RBC that was also high, uric acid was also pretty high, though I don't have any serious symptoms or infections of any sort but surfing on the internet about the normal ranges and leukaemia and other stuff has really scared me, besides my doctor says that the report seems to be pretty normal.

Discomfort in throat

I know that cancer is an extreme case, but this has been disturbing me. I caught a cold almost a week ago, which first started with discomfort in throat. Then the theist wasn't a problem, normal cold and cough, due to season change and probably the smog in Delhi. But this morning my throats started aching and has been aching till now. I smoke very rarely, once or twice in a couple of months. What are the chances that this could be cancer? When should I decide to go for a diagnosis. What else should I look out for?

And now from last 5 days there is lots of vomitting and the colour of vomit is green. What will be the situation now? What we can do?
