I'm so sorry you are so anxious about your blood tests.  With your background, I would be incredibly worried, too.  I'm very sorry to hear about your Mom's pancreatic liver cancer.  My Dad had it, too.  I am not a doctor and know nothing about medicine but I've learned a few things along the way.  Here is link that lists possible symptoms:

If you are a smoker, now is the time to quit because that can skew the odds.  Here are some links that might help you understand elevated liver function tests:

There is an amazing site that allows you to look up the meanings of your own labs online: http://www.labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/cbc/glance.html.

Just in case, here are a couple of links that might help you investigate the biliary system:

God bless, Godspeed and good luck!
