I am 43 and my first mammogram was abnormal and I need repeat studies I also had an elevated platelet count?

I am concerned that this could mean cancer? All of my blood work prior has always been normal...please help

    They are two separate issues.

    You don’t say how elevated your plates are, it could be something as simple as anemia.

    You also do not say what is abnormal about your mammogram so there is nothing to comment on. What does the radiologist state in their report? It could just be calcification for all we know.
