Low Platelets
Hi, I was wondering what the chances were of having Leukemia or lymphoma with 2 consecutive low platelet counts. For example, 3 months ago they were 135, and now 131. The rest of the blood work comes back in normal ranges. Thank you for any feedback.

Usually with Leukemia and Lymphoma one will have more than just a platelet lab abnormal.  There are various conditions that are not cancer than can cause a low platelet count.    

I would recommend following up with a Hematologist.

your numbers are only slightly low anyway

maybe that's just normal range for you - unless you've have some chronic virus infection

I'd guess there's not much cause to worry at this point about hematological malignancy or ITP

Thanks for answering. I am meeting with a Hematologist in 3 weeks. I met with a Hema, and she told me to come back in 4 weeks. I went for more blood work and a sonogram to check my spleen. I guess I'll see what that says, but i have had since Mach, 2 successive blood tests where everything else is normal, white counts, red counts, etc. She said nothing on there raises a flag but do the other tests to be sure.

I am still a little worried though...
