Hi and thank you for choosing Justanswer about your concern. I'm Dr Ted Manos M.D. and I can respond. If your B 12 level is 2000 picograms per ml that is elevated. What does that mean? Certain cancers are associated with elevated levels of B 12. You'll need to follow up with your doctor. This has been known for some time but I've not seen patients with cancers being tested for B 12 levels.

COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT KINDS OF CANCERS
Expert:  Dr Ted Manos replied 2 months ago.
Mostly blood cancers like leukemia. Also noncancer like polycythemia which is too many normal red blood cells.
