Discuss with Hematologist and your Drs.. Why was the test done? Don't know enough details to be able to help.

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, what you described is not consistent with a cancer. Wish you good health!
