Tumor Marker Examination Results?
I am not married according to my CA125 type of lab examination, the results are 243.2 r nDo I suggest that I should be operated?
Hello Fatma, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
CA125 (cancer antigen 125) is a type of tumor marker examination. This examination can be submitted for several reasons, including:
monitor the results of cancer therapy for ovarian cancer screening in people at high risk (for example there is a family history of ovarian cancer or have certain cancer-carrying genes) checking for cancer recurrence after therapy Normally CA125 levels are less than 46 U / mL. An increase in value does not always indicate cancer. Some other things that can cause an increase in CA125 levels:
endometriosis of diseases of the liver, pelvic inflammatory disease, pregnancy and menstrual fibroids / myoma. Whether or not to perform surgery certainly cannot be based on CA125 examination results alone, but must also be based on clinical findings and other investigations. You should bring the CA125 examination results back to the doctor who treats you to get a more complete explanation of these results. For now, you are not explaining your clinical condition or other clinical findings that made you carry out CA125 examination, so it is difficult for us to make a deeper interpretation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
