Ovarian cancer: Although not reliable as a screening treat, ca125 can be helpful in monitoring a patient with known ovarian cancer. There are too many things other than ovarian cancer that affect ca125 to make it useful in general population screening. It is helpful in screening high risk patients due to genetic factors.
