Low platelet count. Cancer?!

by Cheiloproclitic - March 07 at 11:32 PM

Two years ago, I felt some pain in the lymph glands under my jaw. The sonogram showed that my nodes were "insignificantly" reactive. My doctor told me to have a reqular blood test and it turned out that I had a low platelet count as well (80,000). I've had a lot of tests since then and the number is going down every time! It's 45000 now. Almost all the results are normal except for platelets and some protein called Beta 2 microglobulin. My B2M was 2.17 mg/L in the first test, 9 months ago. After 6 months it increased to 2.23, and now it's about 2.3. I asked my doctor if the result of B2M was important amd he answered "No!" Saying it's not that high, and that they consider it when it, for example, doubles! One more thing that was not in it's normal reference range when I first had the test was CMV IgG (126 and a few days later 230)

My doctor has asked me to have another test in three months to see what will happen to the platelets, and said if it gets worse I'm gonna have to go through a bone marrow biopsy! Does that suggest I have blood cancer? What about the tests?

Thanks in anvance
