MCV, MCH, MCHC - Normal Range

Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) measures the average size (or volume) of your red blood cells;

Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) measures how much hemoglobin (the substance in your red blood cells that carries oxygen) is in your red blood cells;

Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) measures the amount of hemoglobin in your red blood cells relative to the size of the cell (called hemoglobin concentration).

MCV is sometimes used, along with other lab test results, to help diagnose and monitor multiple myeloma (MM). Your doctor may also use these tests to help diagnose types of anemia.
