Not the right test: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, TgAb test is just above normal and not of concern. But it was not the right test, you need to get serum thyroglobulin level if thyroid tumor is your concern.
