Hi @SparkyDave11 gosh you have been through a lot.
It must be a really anxious time for you.
A great big welcome to our forum.
I am a bit confused, have you actually been diagnosed with a blood cancer at this point?
I think you really need to ask your medical team that has been treating you and ordering tests for their conclusions or way forward as they know you and your whole medical history.
Please do let us know how you get on and really look after yourself.

Good Morning @SparkyDave11,
A very warm welcome to the forum. I hope you are doing okay today? I am sorry to hear that you are feeling worse.

It is understandable that you will be concerned about any cancer when and indeed the route cause of your lung issues.

May i ask, have you been able to talk to your private medical team about your recent Antistreptolysin results?

Have they been able to explain what your raised result may mean for you?

We do understand that a raised result may indicate a recent Strep infection and can after treatment take some time to normalise again.

Has your team offered any next steps for you or a respiratory referral back to talk with a specialist?

Do know that if you would prefer to talk things through, our helpline is very much here for you at any point- 0808 2080 888.

Best Wishes, Lauran
