I went to have my annual checkup last month and some of my labs came back abnormal. So my doctor sent me to see a specialist. She ordered a lot of blood tests and I had to wait to get the results.

I went today to get the results after waiting a month. NO CANCER!!!!! Everything is my normal but I do have to go back every 3 to 4 months To keep an eye on everything.

I am thankful to God everything is my normal.

My family have a history of cancer and my platelet count was high. So it caused alarm with my doctor. She would only tell me it could be a blood disorder or cancer.

This is what she was worried about. Sorry so long just want to give all the information I have.

A high platelet count may be referred to as thrombocytosis. This is usually the result of an existing condition (also called secondary or reactive thrombocytosis) such as:
Cancer, most commonly lung, gastrointestinal, ovarian, breast or lymphoma
Anemia, in particular iron-deficiency anemia and hemolytic anemia
Inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or rheumatoid arthritis
Infectious diseases such as tuberculosis
If an individual has had their spleen removed surgically
Use of birth control pills (oral contraceptives)
Some conditions may cause a temporary (transitory) increased platelet count. These may include:
Recovery from significant blood loss such as from trauma or major surgery
After physical activity or exertion
Recovery from excess alcohol consumption and vitamin B12 and folate deficiency
Rarely, thrombocytosis is caused by a bone marrow disorder. An example is thrombocythemia, also called primary or essential thrombocythemia, a rare myeloproliferative disorder in which the bone marrow produces an extremely high number of platelets. Often there are no signs and symptoms and the condition is discovered when testing is done for a health check or for other reasons.
Individuals who have this condition may be at risk of excessive clotting (thrombosis) due to the excess platelets, but they may have bleeding problems, as the platelets may not function normally. This disorder is often associated with a mutation in the gene called JAK2. A test for this mutation should be performed if a health practitioner suspects that an individual has the disorder. More than half of the people with essential thrombocythemia have the JAK2 mutation. People with other myeloproliferative or myelodysplastic disorder, such as chronic myeloid leukemia, polycythemia vera or certain subtypes of myelodysplastic syndrome, may also have markedly higher platelet counts.

Quoting WickedPissah: That's awesome.
