No!: In situ melanoma does not metastasize, has nothing to do with blood counts. In situ means that the melanoma cells are in the very outer layers and cannot reach the blood stream or lymphatics.Simple removal (excision) is curative. If your hemoglobin is ok, the rbc and MCV are more or less meaningless and WBC of 4.2 is fine. Many people have a mildly high eosinophil count, especially if allergies.
