Polythycemia?

A close friend of mine was just recently diagnosted with polythycemia. He says its nowhere near serious and that its simply too many red blood cells. As far as I've read however, it seems to be a bit more serious than that. When i questioned him further, he replied by telling me that it wasn't "as advanced as stage one". Can some one please enlighten me as to whether or not thats even possible, and if so, let me know what to expect as far as the toll it should take on him physically. I hear tell that the condition mostly strikes older individuals, and even then it's rare. My friend is only 16. I'm not sure if that would have any baring on this at all. Either way, your replies would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure where I'd be without this person. Help me to help him.
