I have non alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. What does it mean if my MCH and MCV are .2 higher than the normal range? Is that a sign of liver cancer or a blood cancer?

In brief: MCV

MCV is Hematocrit/Total RBC count and is a measure of average blood cell size.
Alcoholism is a cause secondary to poor absorption or lack of intake of B12 and folate. The low B12 and folate is a deficiency that leads to enlarged cells.
