Customer Question

his labs all came back normal except is rbc is 5.59 and ALT is 98. his doctor doesn't seem to be concerned, but the nurse practioner said that it could be a sign of cancer and that maybe the anal cyst is really a tumor. is this true? do those lab results indicate potential cancer?
