This is an odd.....: Question. Of course, a theoretical answer is yes, but i would ask you why you are focussed on whether or not you have cancer? Likewise, why are you and your dr pursuing laboratory work up? What is the concern driving these evaluations? Perhaps you could share some more detail with us so that we can be maximally helpful.
