Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
platelets are slightly low at 84K but far from dangerous range. it just needs to be watched and followed with repeat testing again in 3-6 months.
I am not worried about your WBC count or RDW count.
your counts do not point to cancer
have your doctors set you up for repeat CBC testing in 3-6 months?
