Did you have any other symptom?
Which treatment did you get?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The doctor isn't worried at all. I got no treatment as my fever resolved and I am feeling ok. I am just a bit worried cuz cancer runs in my mother's family.

Thank you for all the information,
You need not to worry about cancer.
Fever for 1-2 days are usually from an infection.
It has resolved too.

The blood count also suggests an infection.

A slightly raised ALT level is not significant.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
