Hello, Welcome to the icliniq I can understand your concern and following is my opinion for your asked question. Your attached report suggestive of Polycythemia. The cause for polycythemia could be primary myeloproliferative neoplasm or secondary polycythemia by other causes. To rule out primary polycythemia jak2 and exon 12 mutation study by RT PCT can be done. The secondary causes which are non neoplastic are dehydration, smoking, respiratory causes, cardiac causes, testosterone etc. For that I suggest you investigate with chest x ray, EKG for primary work up. Drink more water and stop smoking if having habit of it. I suggest you investigate with serum EPO estimation as well. Repeat your CBC after few days. Kindly revert back with above mentioned report once done. Meanwhile drink more water and don't forget to revert back to me with repeat CBC after few days. Don't worry. Hope I have answered your asked questions Let me know if I can assist you further Best regards
