This is Dr. David

normal calcium level is from 8.5 to 10.2 mg/dL

I am a cancer doctor.

this is not a sign of cancer.

you can ask your doctor to check your parathyroid hormone levels checked. but I bet they are normal

your calcium levels are most likely on the high side of normal because your albumin levels are high.

you are safe to taking vitamin D

I am not worried about you having cancer.

let me know if you have questions.
