Very worried - tiny patches of pin ***** blood on legs

So i seem t be a regular all of a sudden here.... Heres the story.

I had a blood test in February and came across my results when i needed the info to send to a private Doctor.

I noticed that my serum total protein was 85 g/L and my serum albumin? was also slightly high. I googeled them and was shocked to find it could be a sign of lukaemia. Now i'm freaked out an my mind is running wild!

The test was a fasting test done at about 12.30pm and i had to fast from 12am. I didnt drink very much water and the doctors struggled to get blood from my vein...I also heard this could affect the result.

The reason im worrying is i have these 2 patches on my leg of pin pric skin that looks like blood spots. They have been there a few weeks now and do not dissapear under a glass. Im pretty sure there is one on my arm and stomach, although i also have pityriasis rosea on my thigh and stomach so it could be that.

The rest of my blood test from what i can see was amoung the normal ranges. After spending time on google im very anxious.

If i had lukeamia, would it show up in more results? My doctor didnt even contact me to tell me they were high! Does this mean they are not worried?

Hiya. Those blood spots are quite normal, in fact ive had them for years. Googling symptoms only ever creates needless worry. If you had lukemia, then it would have signs in your white and red blood count, further more you would have a swollen spleen etc etc.

Your doctor wouldnt contact you for this as its not a great concern and will probley speak with you when you meet up.

So try not to worry, if your doctor isnt then that usually means you shouldnt
