Possibility of mild Hemolytic anemia
to be conside
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
I would like to lay to rest your apprehension about liver cancer
as cause of raised bilirubin.
These are the points against these being the cause
1. Pancreatic cancer usually produce progressive jaundice and pain and are usually fulminant. As you mentioned you have been having raised bilirubin since 25 years . So its more likely to be a benign pathology
2. Hepatitis including infective Hepatitis usually does not produce isolated bilirubin elevation. It's usually associated with other symptoms and complaint too
I hope you have got an Ultrasound
of abdomen done to rule out any heoatobilia abnormality. In the Presence of normal ultrasound report I would consider the possibility of mild Hemolytic anemia like sickle cell trait
or thalessemia trait as the cause of persistent elevated mild bilirubinemia.
I would suggest you to discuss this probability with your Physician.
Rest be assured there is no cause for concern.
In case you require any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.
