Increasing EOS count, elevated D Dimer, scared I have cancer?

Posted , 2 users are following.

About 2 months ago the hospital found a lesion on my ovary with internal flow, said it could be normal but worse case scenario it could be cancer. Had me follow up with my gyn for mri. Mri showed nothing. Eos was slightly elevated when lesion was found, should be no more then 3 it was 4.1, recently had blood work again and it went up to 5.6. All the rest of blood work is normal though. But afraid that means cancer like leukemia or something because I’m bad at googling stuff and that’s what comes up. why could everything else be normal and EOS continue to increase? Could that be normal? Or should I worry about it being cancer somewhere?

I also have an elevated d dimer but no PE was suspected with CT scan so they discharged me. My regular doctor just shrugs it off like it’s no big deal but I’m concerned.

    hello mickey!! i do not find any cause of concern in ur case..the normal eosinophil percentage ranges from 1 to 6%..so ur results are in normal range..my eos percentage is currently 3 %..2 months ago,it had jumped to 5% with an elevated WBC count 11.5 and elevated lymphocyte percentage of 47..but this month ,the results are back to normal..so u are having unnecessary worries..just stop thinking about it!
