Blood Mcv Levels
Insist on an answer: If you're mildly or not anemic and your RBC count is a bit high, you probably have thalassemia minor which is a non-problem unless you marry someone else who has it.

Not from this,,: Your MCV is within the normal range (80-100 fL). Having said this, it's a good idea to keep track of your overall blood work and maintain regular visits with your doctor, especially since you've got bleeding and bruising.
