Here are some ...: At this time of individual care, you should refer this Q to the ordering / treating Doc who knows more about your medical detail so the findings could be correlated with clinical picture. Sporadic info online may cause more confusion and unnecessary anxiety. So, be patient to talk with your doctor; that is most reasonable and best for you, especially in non-urgent events as such. Best wishes...
