Not likely cancer. Listen to his Dr. Always send normal values for lab tests as they may be different in NY.

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, nothing in the information you provided suggests cancer. It would be prudent to follow your doctor's advice. Wish you good health!
