Thank you for asking at ehealthforum

I read your question and i understand your concern. First BCR ABL qualitative is done then quantitative if former is positiver. Its done for CML. Let your oncologist decide what is best for you.

I hope it helps. Please consult your doctor as our guidance is just for education purposes and can be replacement of an actual physical consultation.
Take care
