Detailed Answer:
Hello dear welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I see the test results of complete blood count you uploaded and white blood cells are elevated, neutrophils are elevated and immature grans also.
This can be related to an infection and most probably a bacterial infection.
Possibly 2 years ago he also had an infection.
You also can add more details like if he has fever, elevated body temperature, any pain or other symptoms.

Hope I have answered the question.

As far as I can tell he doesn't have infection or inflammation anywhere that would point to an in infection. Unless it's internal. He has usual aches and pains that any older person would get after a long day off work. But he doesn't nit complain of anything significant.

Brief Answer:
See details below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
I think he may need to do a CRP blood test to check the level of inflammation and an ultrasound to check the internal organs.
If everything is normal and no cause of inflammation is found then he may need to visit a haematologist.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
