Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) means how much hemoglobin is riding on the red blood cells. This happens in macrocytic anemia (macrocytic meaning large red blood cells, anemia meaning low levels of RBC). The Mean Platelet Volume tells us how big these platelets are; how uniform in size the platelets are. Abnormally high values here occur in thrombocytopenia, some leukemias, polycythemia vera (a bone marrow disease), rheumatoid arthritis, renal failure, Hodgkin's disease, pancreatitis.

You need to get a detailed examination done from a physician or a hematologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
