Specializes in Pathology

Clinical context: 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, if you were not being treated with chemo, it would not have been of concern. Wish you good health!
