My WBC is 3.4...

My WBC is 3.4 and my Basophils % is 3%, should I be concerned about cancer? My doctor is telling me my results are "perfect" but my heartrate continues to drop (under 50 yesterday while working) and I constantly feel tired.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

No I have all my bloodwork/labs from 2016 to present though

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My mom passed from cancer last year - lung cancer at 47 ok, thank you!

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
