Hi. I dont think this is symptom of blood cancer. Low Hemoglobin in your case is due to deficiency of iron and vitamin B12/folic acid deficiency. It take months to recover. Repeat your hemoglobin level after one month of treatment. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
