Philadelphia chromosome: Anxiety awaiting diagnosis
I’m so confused..googling way to much and having so much anxiety.. I was referred to oncologist with a high platelet count. I’m 61 and never had a health issue until now. My blood work came back positive for the Philadelphia chromosome. My white blood count is totally normal.. my spleen is not enlarged.. no symptoms of CML..
My oncologist is doing a bone marrow to determine if I have CML or Philadelphia + essential thrombocytosis. Has anyone experienced this? I’m having a hard time finding cases of Philadelphia positive ET.. Does the Philadelphia positive chromosome always point directly to CML? Thanks for any info on this.. I’m ready to accept my diagnosis snd begin treatment .. the unknown is the worst.
