Estradiol levels too high

by Rachel
(San Diego, CA, USA)

Hi,
I am a 48 year old female and I just checked my hormones levels on day 5 and everything was normal except for the Estradiol which was 573 pg/ml. My Dr. was concerned about this result and told me that I had to redo the test on my next cycle because he was very surprised with the result and thought maybe the test wasn't right. I was reading that I might have Estrogen Dominance but I 'm not sure if this is the case or I should be concerned with other more serious health issues like ovarian or adrenal cancer.
I have many symptoms of estrogen dominance.
What do you think I should do?
Thanks
