Pediatrics/High platelates count


I am 25 years old. While doing the routine checkup my blood test platelate count found 16lacs..From last two years I had this problem. doctor adviced me to take ecosprin tablate for 2 years but there is no improvement in platelate count.Due do this my family members & i decided to change the doctor i went to BSES hospital there doctor has done blood test, bone marrow test. then these report had sent to the KEM hospital for Cancer analysis.Meantime doctor adviced me to take Hydroxeurea (hydrea) tablate to decrese the platelate count.Reports from KEM hospital is normal it has come negative..after taking the hydread my platelates are coming to normal.. but whenever i don't take the tablates it's incresing.. doctor told me that it's not harmefull.. I have to take care while pregnancy.. But i don't understand why my platelates count is incrasing?? & in future this can cause a cancer???

it is a kind of problem in bone where platelets are produced in excess... hydroxyuyreas do act at the same point.
as the problem seems to be permanent, it may be likely that you may need to take the treatment for years, at least once in three months after platelet check.
why this happens is a matter of research, some times some people have or develop excess blood cell producing tumiors, cancer like changes in bone marrow. this si just an example and if needed you need repeat bone amrrow studies.
for time being, apart from treatment by your doctor, you may need excess water intake .. and your doctors may search for newer drugs.
