Polycythemia corresponds to an increase in the amount of red blood cells or erythrocytes in the blood, that is, above 5.4 million red blood cells in women and over 5.9 million red blood cells per μL in men. Due to the increase in the number of red blood cells, the blood becomes more viscous, which causes the blood to circulate with more difficulty through the veins, which can cause some symptoms, such as headache, dizziness and even heart attack.
