I had a blood test taken 2 weeks ago and then received a letter from my doctor asking for another one to be taken for proteins and then to see my doctor should I be worried?

any particular proteins it mentions?

It could be nothing, a little more info would help.
It just says proteins on the letter from docs it all started as I have had an infection in my knee area which has gone but there is a lump still there

ah it sounds like they are looking for proteins related to infections. Shouldnt be anything to worry about, It could even be that they messed up the first tests and they need to repeat. Or it could be that they are comparing the two test to see if the levels of this particular protein has gone down or up.

Dont think its anything to worry about at all. The first blood test would be for the organs. The blood test for the proteins may highlight any lingering infection to allow them to treat you before the infection sets in...

I wouldnt worry too much about it.... :thumbsup:
