Unhappy Osteo calcium??

What does it mean to have high osteo calcium levels? Does anyone know? I am verry worried about cancer...everything I read about too high of calcium levels usually points to cancer. Is osteo calcium the same thing as calcium? Can anyone help me? Thanks

Re: Osteo calcium??

"Osteo" just means bone. Was the test you had a blood test or a bone tap?(biopsy of the bone)

High calcium in the blood doesn't always mean cancer. Hyperparathyroid, hyperthyroid, kidney problems, some granulomatous diseases and other dietary problems can cause high calcium.
