See hematologist: The term laks/cc doesn't translate into English. If he has a platelet count of 1.4 million per cc, it is abnormally high and he needs a referral to a hematologist to recheck it, and if that level is confirmed, to do tests to find the cause. Some of the possible causes are quite serious, so please, if my reading of the count is correct, have him follow this up
