mmm..Tricky Question..

For sure...I could rule out-Cushings--Polycythemia may be the initial manifestation of cushings..

Hypernephroma--->of course--yes
Uterine myoma--->known to secrete erythropoietin
Cerebellar hemangioblastoma--->Have a sense that it would have Polycythemiawink

Is it gastric malignancy....NEW?
