No.: A count of 11.3 is just above the normal and in fact may be normal for you, or it may due to your sinusitis. Please take a balanced diet rich in fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains; low is saturated fats; no tobacco, no alcohol till 21 and even then no more than one drink a day. Exercise at least 150 minute/day and maintain a circle of good friends who share the same values. Best wishes.

Restate: Your question is not quite clear. Perhaps you can restate it. Is your hemoglobin 11.3? If so, that is not unusual for your age and being pregnant. You may be iron deficient. You should talk to your obstetrician regarding nutrition and vitamin supplements during pregnancy.

No: Cancer will not be something that you have to worry right now. But certainly, you are at the age where you should start living a healthy lifestyle and build a healthy habit for your body and mind. Hemoglobin of 11.3- is just mildly low or could be normal for you. Eat a well healthy diet, exercise regularly, stay away from alcohol and cigarette. Smoking is not cool. Don't forget to use seatbelt on.
