I would like opinions. I am a 60-year-old female. Polycythemia Vera runs in my family. Both my father and grandmother died from complications of the disease. After my father's death my uncle took me aside and advised me to keep a watch out for this.
I have had chronic health issues that caused intermittent iron-deficient anemia. The anemia is no longer a problem and now my red cell counts are running a little high as follows. Do you think I should seek further testing given these results and my family history?
Thank you in advance.
