A 51-year-old male asked:

i get blood work done every few months and have had slowly rising platelet levels for over 3 years. i didn't even notice until this last test showed a 419 level. it's been in the high 300's for the last 3 years but this is the first time out of range?

High platelets : Your platelets are mildly elevated and there are many other situations in which they are elevated, aside from cancer. Your treating physician should be able to followup properly.
