This is Dr. David
why do you think you have cancer.
what is your parathyroid hormone levels? if your parathyroid hormone levels are still high this can cause your calcium levels.
normal calcium are 8.5-10.2
10.4 isn't super high and not a sign of cancer.
high albumin levels can cause your calcium levels to be a bit high
normal parathyroid hormone values are 10 to 55 picograms per milliliter (pg/mL).
no. your levels can be elevated from high albumin levels
your calcium isn't at a dangerous level.
your symptoms are not due to cancer.
you need an MRI scan of your spine to look for pinched nerves in your neck which can cause numbness in the back of your head and tingling.
Normal values are 10 to 55 picograms per milliliter (pg/mL).
your doctor is in error.
patients who have parathyroid cancers have a PTH hormone levels in the 100-200-300 range.
you didn't need the parathyroid hormone surgery.
high albumin levels can can use slightly elevated calcium levels.
